Severndroog Castle

Here's some wonderful news to warm our cockles on this fine Spring day.

Severndroog Castle, which is nestled in amongst the trees atop Shooter's Hill, has been awarded a substantial amount of money from the Heritage Lottery Fund to help it down the long road of restoration. The money, £595,000 no less, will go towards the formation of a visitor centre, educational centre and this is the bit I am particularly keen on, a tea room. Well, I find history lessons are so much more palatable over a cup of earl grey and cream bun.

I don't know why I clicked on "tea room" perhaps living in Plumstead it's because there isn't one and I have forgotten what they are...but Betty's. I love Betty's. I used to live in Yorkshire and go with my parents and Great Aunt. In fact I love Harrogate, all of it.

I lived in Harrogate for a year and loved every minute. Betty's was kept as a place to visit on special occasions; there I discovered Masham sausages and don't think I've tasted a better banger since.
