Castle Cary





Our habit of jumping on a train (!) continued last Saturday!

Living in the railway town of Newton Abbot, certainly has its benefits

 and we are lucky enough to have a bit of choice

 when it comes to train travel.






So Castle Cary it was!!

The station is about a mile from the town... 

but it's a very pleasant walk!





One of the first sights to greet us was the Round House.

And as it happens I stumbled across just the person to lock up!!!

A shady character if you ask me! ;-)




Castle Cary is a quaint and interesting town.

I particularly like the colour of the stone, which gives the place

a warm feel even on a cold winter's day.












The Market House is the obvious focal point of Castle Cary;

it's a grade 2 listed building, dating from 1855.

One can imagine all sorts of 'going's ons'

taking place here!








However...the highlight of the day, for me...




Mother's Little Vintage Tea Room!!!! ;-)




Well, what can I say?!

Mother's Little Vintage Tea Room is nothing short of a delight!

You are transported back to the 1930s as soon as you enter!

One of the best tea rooms I've visited!















Wonderful! 

Appropriate reading material is at hand whilst you wait to be served!







And if you do happen to mention that it's your birthday...(as my kind 'other half' did)...









                      
                     A lovely trip...not too far by train...or any other form of transport

                      if you have it! Trust me to spot this beauty as we were strolling

                      around!! Just my colour too! ;-)
