Lancaster Curiosity (3)

A blustery wet day as I make my way across town to the studio. My cap is pulled forward to shield my eyes from the icy blast and my head head down as I push forward into the driving rain. All I can see is shiny wet cobblestones.

In the shelter of the castle wall I glimpse an arrow slit. There are several of these clustered around the main gateway. Clearly this place was designed to give unwelcome visitors a hot reception. These days the castle is besieged by friendly tourists.
