2013 Opening Delayed
Saturday 23rd March 2013
Today should have been the day that we opened for the 2013 Season. We were hoping for sunshine but would have been happy if it was dry, the ground has had quite a soaking over the winter.
What we hadn't expected was snow! The photograph on the left shows the view from the main gate this morning.
Because of the severe weather we have reluctantly delayed our opening until Good Friday, 29th March, when we start our Easter Jamboree.
The photograph on the right shows the view just over a week ago when the gardeners were out cutting the grass in front the castle.
Hopefully by Good Friday winter will have finally given way to spring. We look forward to welcoming you then to the Castle and Gardens and apologise once again for the delay.
