Anyway, we went to Sherborne Old Castle. It's not much more than a half an hour's drive away but had, for some reason, totally passed me by, or put more accurately, I had passed it by on many occasions. It used to be owned by Walter Raleigh. It's now very much a romantic ruin in the grounds of the house he had built to replace it but I have a love of castle ruins and find them much more interesting and worthwhile visiting than all the stately homes we have dotted around here.
