Tutbury Castle

On Easter Sunday I took a ride out to Tutbury Castle which was once home to the Mercian Kings and afterwards the Earls and Dukes of Lancaster. It's recently featured on the television series Most Haunted. That's largely down to the fact a lot of people think it's haunted. I didn't see any ghosts but I did see a right fit youngish lady dressed up in Viking Attire.

To be honest there isn't really a fat lot left of it to see but they do host quite a lot of event days. On Easter Sunday and Monday they had a Viking re-enactment event on which would have been fairly entertaining had I stuck around long enough to watch it and hadn't been distracted by the fit lady in Viking attire.




The South Wing/Hall/what ever they called it and a hanging man. Don't be alarmed, he's not real.




Hang in there matey

Call me sad but the most thrilling part of the visit was clapping eyes on a right fit youngish lady dressed up in Viking attire (Yeah I know, I've already mentioned the right fit youngish lady dressed in the Viking attire).... But listen, talk about the wrong place at the wrong time, she only went and got her ass right in the middle of my photo (rolls eyes).

Some one should have a word with them about re-pointing those walls......looks a right mess, maybe they should think about applying to D.I.Y S O S on BBC 1, they'd get it sorted in no time, a bit of rendering here, laminate flooring over there...a tasteful hanging basket in place of the dead man...would do wonders methinks.....

What a great place! I love castles.

Are you sure it's not haunted? There is definitely an orb on the grass in the first picture. Perhaps it was doing a spot of sunbathing?

Has the fit young lady in the viking costume got very short legs?

Ant - The place could do with a bit of work on the roof too.

Miss U - I'm not convinced orbs like to sunbath you know. I'll have a word with Derek Acorah, see what I can find out lol.

Ellie - Well you know..... sort of puts her head just at the right height for....

The Anima in Viking attire, nice one. All us lesser mortals have to put up with the ordinary attractions, and you think you're sad. Anyway, when you were too busi looking at your woman, you missed the angel in the oriel- south wing - or the ghost?
