|Beeston Castle is only about 30 mins. drive away and one of our favourite spots for a picnic. Amazing views of the Cheshire plain all around as the castle is 500 feet high on a rocky outcrop. In the distance you can see the weather coming from the welsh hills. The cows in the fields below look like ants and the ants look like tiny cows. The Olympic maize maze in the distance looks nothing like the five interlocking rings - maybe it's based on the acropolis? |
Later, after our picnic we visited the Shire Horse Stud and nature trail nearby and saw lots of chickens, ducks, turkeys, pigs, goats, swans, invisible red squirrels, cows, sheep and deer. The bumpy ride on the tractor and cart was an experiance my bottom will never forget! School holidays - don't you just love 'em!
