Arundel and the Swanborough Lake walk

The Beauties of the Sussex Countryside
Arundel is one of my favourite towns in Sussex.  The River Arun runs through it and it has a Roman Catholic cathedral in it as well as a medieval castle owned by the Duke of Norfolk, which costs an arm and a leg to visit!  When I used to teach German language students we always went to Hever Castle in Kent, the home of Anne Bolyn.

When I first arrived in Brighton and went to Arundel, I visited a strange  museum which is long gone.  It had on display all sorts of strange things like babies with 2 heads, hands with 6 fingers and other curiosities.  I can’t remember a great deal about it now since it has been gone at least 25 years.
We sometimes go to Arundel for a day out and it has some nice restaurants and walks.  One particular favourite is around Swanborough Lake which is to the South-East of Arundel castle.  I thought I would share some of the photographs with you as I haven’t done a scenic post for a long time!
