This is an air museum situated on the old RAF station of Winthorpe near Newark. It of course has one my all-time favourite aircraft this English Electric Lightning T.5 XS417 first flown 17.7.64. It also has one of the fifteen remaining Avro Vulcans in the UK which is the subject of the next photo!
This museum has an internationally renowned art collection containing paintings by El Greco, Francisco Goya, Canaletto which I thought was an ice-cream, Jean-Honore Fragenard and Francois Boucher. It was opened in 1892 and was built in grand French style with landscaped gardens. Like the outside hence the photo. Inside? Nah!!!!!
This river rises on the eastern slope of Cross Fell in the North Pennines. It flows eastward for 85 miles to reach the North Sea between Redcar and Hartlepool near Middlesborough.
Barnard Castle is a ruined medieval castle situated in the town of the same name in Teesdale, County Durham. The castle is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and was designated as a Grade 1 listed building in 1950. A castle was built on the site from 1095 to 1125 by Guy de Balliol and was extended from 1125 to 1185 by his nephew Bernard de Balliol and his son Bernard II. It is now in the custody of English Heritage.
When I joined the Royal Signals in 1963 I was based in Catterick Camp and often visited Richmond. I never set eyes on this castle! It stands in a commanding position above the River Swale close to the centre of Richmond. It was originally called "Riche Mount", "The strong hill". the castle was constructed from 1071 onwards as part of the Norman Conquest of Saxon England as the Domesday Book of 1086 refers to a 'castelry' in Richmond that year.
Taken from Richmond Castle. The source of the River Swale is at the confluence of Birkdale Beck and Great Sleddale Beck. The river flows north north east eventually joining the River Ure near Myton-On-Swale. It is 117.8 kilometres in length.
