Colin briefing the troops on the walk ahead
A grey and dank day saw 6 of us set off from the church car park at Lyonshall - so naturally, our first port of call was to the church itself, followed speedily by a circuit of the castle and a visit across the moat to see what was what. The castle was important from the 10th to the 16th century, but by the 17th it was recorded as being a ruin.

The castle needs a bit of work

Our return to Lyonshall took us through maize fields (crop now harvested) and cider apple orchards as well a a couple of fields where we were subjected to close scrutiny by a number of friendly horses. We reached the cars at the church after 4.8 miles. A really interesting walk, and our thanks to Anne & Colin for leading on this occasion.
Erm - got any apples?
