Elder Allen and I wanted to take a P-day and go visit a castle. Peveril Castle is 30 minutes from our home in Sheffield, so off we went. The drive was breathtakingly green and lush. The patch work of grass,trees and rolling hills was amazing.
We were able to find a parking place in the town square and follow the sign up the hill. As it turns out the Lorries (big trucks) hit the street sign and push it in the wrong directions. We walked up the hill for about a mile before we found someone only to tell us we were walking up the wrong hill. Grrrrr! It did not help that I needed to find a toilet. We turned around and headed back down the hill.
Sticking out my thumb just in case I could find a ride back down the hill.
Footpaths are very common here in England.
Walking down the hill to find the right road to the Castle. See how far we walked!
This is a model of Peveril Castle and what it would have looked liked back in the day. See how high and deep the cliffs are. It is a climb to the castle at the top of the hill but we enjoyed the breathtaking views over the Hope Valley.
This is a drawing of the New Hall. I am standing where the fireplace would be.
Where is Elder Allen in the Keep?
Left side of the castle.
LOL HI! Do you see it?
Look at the moss on the wall that has been here forever.
On top of the hill we had our P&J sandwiches. It looks like the clouds are sitting on the grass.
This is our road down the hill. Two cars are suppose to drive on this road. Really?
Sheffield headed back to our flat.
