Part 1 HERE
After crossing the bridge we walked steadily down towards the burn (stream) and along the way I turned my lens on the little things along the way
But also took some of the obviously very old trees
On the way we came near to a road and could see this lovely building from it
Rowland Burdon III, a merchant banker, purchased the manor of Castle Eden in 1758, and in about 1765, with the assistance of architect William Newton, built the house which came to be known as The Castle. The house has three storeys and a seven-bay entrance front. The central three bays are canted and the whole carries a castellated parapet. Last October it was put up for sale for £3 million, some pictures of the interior are at THIS LINK, if anyone’s interested it’s still up for grabs! 🙂
The whole of the dene was covered in wild garlic plants, I bet it smells great when they all bloom!
That’s the end of the tour, though there’s a full album, which can be found HERE
All photo’s can be clicked on to embiggen so you can marvel at their wondrousness 🤣
Stay tooned for our next outing, back to Beamish Museum to see WW1 themed vehicles and horses.
