After the snake and foot fiasco yesterday, we decided to go on a jaunt to old Sherborne Castle, looked after by English Heritage. It’s now a ruin. Walter Raleigh used to live there leasing it from Elizabeth I. But it reverted back to the throne when he was imprisoned for marrying one of Liz’s maids of honour without permission.
One of my favourite bits was the 40 foot deep well. I threw my favourite ball in … Luckily there’s a mesh there to catch balls and people! We threw stones down the gaps in the mesh and it sounded really, really deep! I don’t think I ever would have seen my ball again.
