Day 34 - Howard Wilson EH Barnard Castle.jpg

Done it. End of the 5th walking week. I've made to the half way point...Barnard Castle. I'm here with Howard Wilson, the custodian of the castle and who has worked here for 28 years.

I have always planned to visit Barnard Castle as it holds fond memories of an medieval event I took part in here with the Lion Rampant many years ago, an event that the Yorkshire side of my family came and watched.

I was also met by a photographer from the Northern Echo, who took loads of shots.

After that I found the nearest pub and waited for John Thurston to come and collect me... which was 4 pints later... well I was thirsty.
