Sweetfeet, sorry, I have no pictures of castles, I do have lots of pictures of tractors, although not as good as yours. It's one of those things,isn't it, we don't take pictures of castles because they are always there.I bet you probably would not go to Washington and take a picture of the White House. It is possible to buy professional pictures, of very high quality, of such monuments.Why waste film taking a picture?
Nottingham Castle is about 30 miles away, the Sheriff of Nottingham does not live there, it was torn down in the 19th centurey and rebuilt as a stately home and is now an art gallery,open to the public.We still have a Sheriff of Nottingham, it is an honorary position and someone is elected every year to the job, to open exhibitions, present prizes, etc.The difficulty arises every year, one of the necessary qualifications is the need to ride a horse in ceremonial parades. Nottingham is an industrial city, horses are rare, almost every year the new Sheriff has to have riding lessons!
Going back to our 2 manor houses in North and South Wheatley, as they are both private residences, interior pictures are not possible.
If I can remember to carry a camera in future, I will try to get pictures of more pieces of England to entertain you.Phil
