We've got the car with us at the moment so today we went for a drive out to Whittington Castle which is near Oswestry.
It's only a small castle and is being looked after by the local community rather than by the National Trust, so entrance is free and there aren't as many restrictions of access as at NT properties.
Later this afternoon we walked over Chirk Aqueduct and up to the tunnel. We also went into Chirk village which is about a 5 minute walk from the canal. It's a nice village with a good butchers, bakers, hairdressers, fancy goods shop and a Spar supermarket. At the moment, the road through the village is being resurfaced and there were traffic restrictions and lots of large road laying wagons and it was all a bit chaotic.
