  • Brough Castle, Cumbria, England.
 Located in the beautiful Cumbrian Eden Valley in northern England, high on a dominant ridge stands the impressive Brough Castle. Around just 20 miles across the hills from its neighbour castle at Brougham, ironically Brough Castle was not just also under the ownership of the powerful 'Clifford' family but it was also built upon the remains of a previous Roman fort. Being located in such proximity to the Scottish border, the castle has inevitably seen action against invading Scots on more than one occasion. Brough Castle is currently owned by @englishheritage but is free of charge to visit.
 Built on a 1st century Roman military fort, the first castle was built in the 11th century using much of the previous ditches to construct the fortress. Much of the castle was ruined by William I, King of Scotland, after he set it a blaze following its capture by his invading Scottish forces in 1174. The large stone keep ruins that you can see today are the most impressive on the site today and it's roots lie in around the year 1200. Ownership of the castle was passed by King John to Robert de Vieuxpont in 1203 and the family would consistently improve the castle until Robert the Younger died in battle in 1264. The castle then passed into the hands of the powerful 'Clifford' family who would maintain ownership for over 400 years.

Fun Facts!
• The Roman fort was one of a chain all defending the route from York to Carlisle.
.
•In 1521, Brough Castle suffered severe damage at the hands of an accidental Christmas fire.

  • Only 9 days away from the 'Where there's a Will there's a way' quadrathlon for Muscular Dystrophy UK! I collected my new kit from Sam Taylor yesterday, and what a lovely thing it is, hoping to do it proud. If anyone is wanting one, there are a number spare @ £31 each, please PM me if so and we will see what sizes remain.

As you'll see, I'm modelling it majestically here with a pint of Isotonic drink (Erdinger Alkoholfrei) thanks to Philip Walker at The New Union Kendal who are being great in helping put the word out, thanks! I had just come from a training session with Kendal Athletic Club so it was much needed! :D

The first run in it will be with Nicky Spinks Saturday morning, likely to be my penultimate training run.

Don't forget to sponsor me here, let's get that target smashed! :D

  • I love reflections... and reflecting about them. So here I go. I also like when reality and reflection lines are blurred!  And isn’t this quite the case with social media?! I digress. 
This capture was taken from my shotgun position in the car as we pulled up to the lodge today in the Eden Valley. ‘Kitty’ - our faithful black cat came on holiday tour with us for the last two weeks and guarded (slept all day in) the lodge for us. She has not been impressed at having to stay inside but the massive rabbits and other Cumbrian critters here would surely have devoured her. Cumbria ain’t no little blue tit, baby shrew Surrey paradise  little Kitty.
