I had Friday off work and had great plans to keep BattleKid off nursery and take him out but one look out the window that morning told me my plans were on hold. Only until Saturday it turned out. With a bit of blue sky we headed to Abergavenny for BattleKid’s overdue haircut and breakfast. From there we made our way to Chepstow Castle.
BattleKid and I had visited this castle nearly 3 years ago when my Dad and nephew came to stay but it was BattleDad’s first visit. It was also my first chance to properly explore the castle as last time BattleKid was only about 6 months old so I was confined to the ground floor with him and his buggy.
And I was so glad he was old enough this time to allow me to see the fabulous rooms and architecture inside this gem of a castle. My particular favourite was the cellar. It had the most amazing ceiling and my pictures simply don’t do it justice.
I also liked this window in one of the castle walls in the Middle Bailey. It’s like a window to the past and present and looks out over the River Wye. This castle is a stunning one and quite vast compared to some of the others we have visited. I’m glad we went and explored it before the rain came back at lunchtime on Saturday.
