There's not much to see in Castle Cary, but it is still just a nice little Somerset village. You'd think there would be a castle there, but there isn't. Turns out there was a castle there, over 1,000 years ago but it is long since gone. In fact, they say that some of the older buildings in the village were built with the stones from the crumbling castle.
There are a couple of interesting sights though.
The market house. Originally built in 1855, now the site of the tourist office and the museum.
The museum has lots of interesting trinkets.
The round house (temporary prison). One of only four in the country. Built in 1779. Behind the old locked wooden door is another locked wooden door!
Tony, breaking out of prison! They keep the keys at the butcher shop across from the round house and you are welcome to borrow the keys.
Just a lazy afternoon, and then in the evening we watched the movie "Inception". This was the second time Ruth and I had watched it, and we're glad we did because the first time it was too confusing! Actually enjoyed it more the second time around.
Not raining yet this morning, so we're off to do some exploring and maybe a hike. Hopefully we'll come back dry!
