This afternoon we planned to visit Hunstanton but changed our minds en route after spotting a sign for Castle Rising. :-)
The castle was built in the 12th century by William d'Albini (Sir William d'Aubigny “Strong Hand”) and is surrounded by substantial earthworks. The keep is said to be haunted by a woman's scream in the middle of the night, believed to be the spirit of Isabella of France.

Here's something which has me puzzled... Every so often I walk past this field and see a lady hoovering. I've been wondering for a while and just can't figure it! Can anyone explain what's going on?

Storr's Cave has two prominent entrances close to the road east of Ingleton. A large passage joins the two with smaller passages leading off. A low passage to the south descends to a dried up streamway. A narrow passage leads north, waiting to be explored another day ;-)
A hidden third entrance used to be an easy climb to a dry chamber full of small bones. However, the entrance has been enlarged and the chamber strewn with clay and debris from a new passage that's being excavated. I can't help wondering who's digging and what they've discovered :-)
