2 Photos: Clitheroe Castle

Clitheroe Castle January 2016

Every time I see the place name Clitheroe written down I read Clit Hero. I’m essentially a teenage boy in a 30 year old woman’s body. Sorry Mum.

Anyway, Jonny and I decided to have a little day out to make the most of his last day of holiday (he’s back in work tomorrow, whilst I’ve still got until Monday. Teacher perks.) We drove down to Clitheroe and had a potter around the little shops before a wander around the castle.

I had done zero research before hand so hadn’t realised that the castle museum is closed on Wednesdays and Thursdays. You can, however, still wander around the old keep so all was not lost. If I’m totally honest, it’s getting to go inside the castle that I was most looking forward to anyway.

Pendle Hill View Jan 2016

It’s a teeny little keep on the top of a small hill in the centre of town. The views from the keep are beautiful, especially those across to Pendle Hill.

I feel like I have visited Clitheroe before as a child but not that I can remember. It’s always nice to explore somewhere I haven’t been before, especially when there’s a castle involved. Now to plot our next mini adventure (with a little more research to avoid closed attractions!)
