A lovely view over the town and showing the prominent position of the castle Colin.
Seems to have picked up a little haze from the distance, which gave inspiration for the mod

Wonderful perspective Colin of a historic castle. Its where my mother in law was born and brought up . Good memories for my wife Thanks. I will try and check out countryfile but having seen the 'shoots' at first hand with dogs picking up birds mortally injured by 'shotgun pellet' but still alive kind of makes it difficult for me to feel comfortable about it. Thanks for your continued supporting comments. Paul
