Beaupre Castle

A great day for a bike ride, a beautiful sunny Autumn day with temps in the high teens the club rode into the Vale of Glamorgan  towards Cowbridge and called into Beaupre Castle on the way.

The castle is set back from the road and across some fields, but well worth a visit.  It's really a fortified manor house built in the 1500's  by the Bassett family but is now a ruin.  

After visiting the castle we rode into Cowbridge for tea etc  at the Quarter Penny Cafe before making our way home.

Autumn fruits

Out on a wander the other day I spotted these, but I only had my phone camera on me.  What was also noticable was the number of birds all feeding up after their summer moult for either the winter here or the long flight to warmer climes.

Let me know if I have identified them wrongly.
