Walking For Softies - October - Antrim Castle

The October walk was to Antrim Castle Gardens. Christopher Bryant, one of the Rangers guided us and gave us a “potted” history of the Castle – Clotworthy House. We heard about the legend of Lady Marian and the Wolfhound in 1607, we visited the ancient Motte, the Terrace Gardens, the lime avenue, the large Parterre, the long canals and Deerpark Bridge, as well as going down to the Pump Chamber and the Water Pump. FInally ending up in the Garden cafe for excellent scones and coffee.
