It was a shame we had to cancel our traditional Good Friday fair here, but the good news is we have an extra date here on Sunday 4 July

The strikingly picturesque and romantic ruins are steeped in much history, tales of bitter border warfare, romance and legend.

It is believed to be the first Castle in the UK owned and run by a local community. All the car parking charges from these events go to keeping the castle and it's grounds open to the public.

Whittington is a small rural community in Shropshire close to the market town of Oswestry. The castle sits in the centre of this lovely village set in about 12 acres of grounds and is the remains of a Norman home.
