berkhamsted castle

On Saturday 13 December we had a train day trip to Berkhamsted and I finally visited the castle I'd seen from the train for two years while commuting from Euston to Bletchley - the substantial remains of a big old early Norman motte and bailey, now in the care of English Heritage (it also has a surprisingly detailed entry on Wikipedia). It was nice to visit it eventually, and possibly the highlight of my day in Berkhamsted. There was a Christmas tree festival in a local church which we also went to, but that wasn't much cop. The chips from the chip shop near the station were good, though.
