Hello Dear Reader,
Before you get excited, we didn’t go to a castle but we did go for a walk to the outside. On the approach you can get glimpses of castle but you’ll have to wait until April to see it as it’s closed until spring.
Lostwithiel is such a lovely little place and known for antique shops and places to eat. We like to go to the flea markets (indoor carboot sale) in the community centre. I’ve been informed that the community centre is currently closed as it’s in need of essential repairs to make it safe. I hope it opens again.
It’s a forty minutes walk to and from the castle and we then had a walk by the river. If you can get there in the winter, it’s quiet enough to walk round and enjoy it. As you can imagine, it gets busy with visitors when it’s warmer.
The river Fowey. I love the river bank and the last autumnal leaves just about hanging on. In the winter, this river can flood and houses near by have been known to fill with blood water.
The walk to the castle is along a really pretty lane. It was popular with joggers, cyclists, dog walker and forms part of a circular walk.
If you’ve never visited, do try, it’s such a beautiful little town. Click on the link for a look at Lstwithiel.
