Do you get invited around for tea Danny? Quite a contrast from last week's series and I await with interest on what will follow.

Some size of a property for a single person to rattle around in, Danny: and the upkeep of such a huge building must be prohibitive.

To answer a couple of Early Questions.

Jonn lets the castle to school groups or as a conference centre. Until i Googled it yesterday at I did not realize some of the visiting groups.
We used to have our Christmas parties there. Extremely cold and no alcohol
I often take visiting photographers or friends around.
As you can probably guess John is a wee bit eccentric but a kindly person.

I am shocked and stunned here Danny.
Christmas parties with NO ALCOHOL ?
That sounds more torturous to me than
being locked in a sheep pen with a dozen sheep !!
Good shot,if a bit sobering for me !!

Such a marvellous castle for one person to live in, I doubt I could sleep with all the noise of the silence within.
