A visit to Sizergh Castle in The Lake District, Kendal, Cumbria


Sizergh Castle, Kendal, Cumbria, National Trust UK


Sizergh castle is a National Trust maintained property on the edge on the lake district in Cumbria North West UK . It is an enjoyable and largely unpretentious place to visit, set within a lush green and verdant landscape. The castle is still inhabited by the Strickland family who have been in residence for over 750 years.













Double flowered geranium

I am not normally a fan of double flowers but i do like this, probably for the vibrancy of the colour.
