Here are some photos from our day.....
Clitheroe Castle in the hazy sunshine
An old stone window. I liked that it still has the original sash and interior shutters.
After walking around for a bit, I spotted this really cute vintage inspired tearoom/cafe and shop where we decided to have our lunch, Callooh! Callay!.
It had an Alice in Wonderland theme....check out the cool flamingo wallpaper!
Food and drinks served in mis-matched china, lovely. I had the 'Tweedle-dum, Tweedle-Tea', which was a very nice spiced blend with cinnamon & cloves. To eat, I had a rather yummy blue cheese and pear panini, which was MASSIVE, and served with vegetable crisps and a hearty salad, yum.
Upstairs in the cafe was a vintage shop! Set out like a house, with the clothing in an old wardrobe, and jewellery on the dresser!
And check out the funky wallpaper in the middle room
Even the loo was cool!
After lunch we climbed to the top of the castle

And at Towneley Hall. This is how England looks on a nice sunny spring day!
Daffodils! Spring flowers are my favourite.
Fountain outside the hall.
Walking in the grounds. It was lovely and quiet and peaceful. Just what I needed after a hectic few weeks!
My feet! Oh how I do love my new Miss L Fire shoes :))
