We took our learning out of the four walls last week and visited Clitheroe Castle last Tuesday. The kids had a great time, Pip especially enjoyed the museum trail and the obligatory cafe stop was very reasonably priced and coped well with our whacky dietary needs:
Tomato and Basil Soup, Chunky Chips and a Toddler Platter for Pip.
Following the trail, brass rubbing, dressing up area and reading corner.
The museum housed a geology section, a victorian study complete with a variety of collector exhibits, a local history section as well as the story of the infamous Pendle Witches. After a good look round, Benedict, Pip and I made our way to the Castle Keep:
They then had a good run around in the play area at the bottom of the hill and I then attempted to complete the labyrinth; true to form like all areas in my life it was completed at break neck speed whilst keeping one eye on the kids!! I think God was having a laugh with me that day!!
I'm determined to visit this place again, only next time I'll leave the sproggles with Dad in the cafe!
