Today, Jenny, Belinda and I explored Castle Cary, a small town eight miles south of Shepton. It has some beautiful historic buildings, including the Round House, one of the four smallest lock-ups in the country - see centre pic. The two top right photographs show the magnificent Market House, the hub of the community, and even the Post Office (see top left) is housed in a golden stone building...
As part of our exploration we took refreshments in the old George Inn, sitting in the window by a roaring log fire - see above.
We did some window shopping in the High Street, admired the Christmas decorations, and then walked into the countryside beyond. The day started quite cold, dry and grey, but the sun came out and transformed the morning.
In Shepton we are surrounded by great villages and towns that are worth looking at. We are on a mission to seek them out!
