Coach Visit to Broughton Castle, near Banbury


Photo by Doug Neale

On a showery day we visited Broughton Castle near Banbury north Oxfordshire, a fortified manor house and home to the 21st Lord and Lady Saye and Sele whose family name is Fiennes.  The Castle has remained in the same family since 1447.  Our group was divided into two for our private tour.  Our guides were very informative and some of the group ventured on to the roof.  After the tour we went across to the café for a superb ploughman’s lunch with beverages.  Some managed to see the pretty garden and on our return to the coach we visited the chapel first consecrated for Christian worship in 1331 and still in use today.


It was a long journey home but all agreed it was a good visit.
