Recent mornings here are chilly and bright. The Autumn colours at Clitheroe Castle have been particularly striking. Hugo and I have spent many a morning walking in the grounds, though I am well aware we need to get a few longer routes in. It’s not just Hugo who is turning into a chunk!
After eighteen months of having nowhere to go for a hot drink in the castle park, the former Bowling Green cafe building is back in business. Now called The 3 C’s Cafe ,it’s a bright cheery place selling coffee, cakes, milkshakes & ice cream. I think it will be very popular with the kids. A quiet brew though, can be snatched early on a week day morning. 🙂
See you soon. 🤗

Lovely. I wouldn’t mind a walk there too. In the top picture there looks like a BIG bird; I can’t enlarge the photo but are you able to make out what it is? Buzzard, probably. 🙋♂️
Thanks Ashley, when I took the photo I thought it was only a crow, but now I’m not so sure!
Another lovely walk, thanks for taking us along!… and what a better way to end it other a cup of Coffee…! and I love that ” Life is like an Ice cream, enjoy it while it melts..”
Always nice to get a coffee after a walk. 🙂
I remember going to the castle with my parents when I was in my early teens, there was a classic car show on and I was bored to tears, both with the castle and with the town as there didn’t seem to be much there but maybe it’s changed over the years and deserves another visit. I do like those pink seat backs though 🙂
I think teenagers still get bored here! The pink seat backs are great, I agree. 😅
Lovely photos and colours here, guessing that is Pendle Hill in the distance?
Pendle is there but also fells opposite. 🙂
Some nice pictures of Kemple End, Parlick and Fairsnape through the castle walls. I can just make out myself waving from Kemple End.
Great pics. Hugo doesn’t look chunky to me, but then he’s not eating the ice-cream is he? I’m not a huge fan of castles, I’ve always thought they must have been hell to live in way back when, all that stonework, poor/zero heating and very little comfort. But that said: great pics. Thanks for another outing.
Thanks for reading Alison. 🙂 I live very close to the castle and the grounds are free, so it’s a regular haunt of ours.
Fabulous outing, walk, views and cafe. Simply perfect.
Thanks Cathy. X
Lovely to visit and walk there with the added bonus of coffee and cakes. I enjoyed your photos:)
Thanks Rosie. X
Lovely autumnal walk, sorry not been able to catch up with the blog until recently xx
That’s ok. Are you still going to Hallin Fell this wknd? X
Not sure, depends on the parking, could do Lantys Tarn, but it looks a puddle lol x
A long time since I’ve been to the castle. In fact a long time I’ve actually been to Clitheroe other than driving through it!
