Visit to Sizergh Castle, 4th August 2016

We had a most enjoyable visit to Sizergh castle. By way of welcome the sun came out when we arrived and stayed out while we explored the castle’s splendid gardens and woodlands.

Of special interest was the new ‘Stumpery’, which was opened last month and marks the first large-scale development of the gardens for almost a century.
