Castle Howard

The weather is far too glorious to sit inside reading and writing blog posts. Let’s just go for a walk round the grounds of Castle Howard, which everyone of my generation knows as the star of  the 1981 production of Brideshead Revisited on ITV. If you want to know more about the building’s real history, just look here.

Your photos make a great advert and remind me that I should discuss another visit to Yorkshire. Perhaps a literary tour – so much to offer.
