We were down in Coventry for a wedding and had a couple of hours to spare. So we did what we always do when we are somewhere new and turned too our trusty National Trust and English Heritage guides for some inspiration. We were in luck just down the road was a castle and not just any old castle, a whopping big Kenilworth castle.
When we were visiting family this summer, we stumbled across English Heritage’s fabulous Ashby Castle. Despite having grown up locally in the area, I had never visited it before. With steps to clamber up, tunnels to crawl through and a large grassy area to run around on, it really was little boy heaven and the perfect place to spend a couple of hours.
(as named per Corwin) So where did we leave off on our big English adventure? Oh yes, diggers in Yorkshire. After we had accomplished that big goal we were more relaxed and also more optimistic that we would make it to our main destination - Castle Donington for the British Truck Championship GP.
