Trip to Helmsley Castle.

Yesterday, with the glorious weather, we went on a lovely day out exploring the Yorkshire countryside. On our travels we came across the small but beautiful village of Hovingham which to our delight was having a village market. 

We went for a look round and there was such a great variety of stalls. Many of which were home made foods with samples to try. I would definitely say I have a sweet tooth so this brownie stand caught my eye straight away. They produce 'Brown & Blonde' brownies which are names after the different chocolates used. 

After our chocolate experience we ventured on to Helmsley, which I also visited a couple of months ago. This time we chose to go have a look at the castle. 

These are a few snaps from walking around the castle. Even though this one below was only taken on my Iphone I love how it has captured the moody sky. We were lucky though it didn't burst out into rain!

The architecture was simply beautiful. Especially with the green fields as a backdrop. 

At the Castle you was able to explore the whole area around the building, being able to walk along the moat. Its crazy to imagine how this was like many years ago and simply amazing!
