Chirk Rules OK!
I was especially fascinated by the adorable, but quirky way they had of telling visitors nicely to ‘Not touch’ or sit on certain pieces.
There are lots of nooks and crannies at Chirk (and stairs!) to discover all sorts of fun things from history.
After a long walk down these stairs, you come to the dungeons. Be aware though, I saw several (naughty and wicked!) people practically running down getting them quickly, hiding round the corner and shouting BOO! on their friends and families.
“We continued our road trip in that week by visiting the glorious Powis Castle. It was lush!! (AKA; Gavin and Stacey!) with fabulous views and absolutely breathtaking.”
But it is in fact the remains of the castle ruins. The residents in Oswestry proudly look after the castle with funding. The area surrounding the castle boasts a quaint little cafe and for a pound a day in parking, how can you not like this place!
It has some spectacular views AND I was dead chuffed to see the clear blue skies above as I took these pictures because it was really bumpy underfoot with lots of tricky steps that could have been a bit treacherous climbing in the rain!
I loved visiting North Wales and ‘England’ a great deal.
I did see some wonderful views that weren’t just situated near castles. But castles were so memorable, that I wanted to write about it.
The people were really friendly too. I walked a lot of miles up and down some wonderful castles, that had most of time REALLY steep stairs! I felt enormously fit afterwards and would definitely do it all again!
