Here in Yorkshire there are lots of abbeys and castles which peeps like to visit even though they are mostly in ruins BOL
Yesterday me and Crybbe went for a visit to Easby Abbey and Richmond Castle which are not far from each other - Judith and a friend came along with us too :-)
Here I am in one of the huge doorways of the abbey
It is an enormous building even in ruins - see how small we look in the photo!
It was founded in 1152 so over 850 years old - English Heritage look after it now.
This is the River Swale that runs nearby and these are the Swaledale sheep:
It did start to rain while we were there so we took shelter in a dog friendly cafe and met two more schnauzers outside:
At the castle we had to climb many stairs to reach the top:
Here we are on the parapet - it was very windy up there!
And a few more views of the countryside around the castle:
This is me furtling in the wild garlic!
