The sum is greater than the parts

What a fabulous market town Richmond is: there is an enormous Norman castle that dominates the town, a river complete with a small waterfall, one of the biggest market squares in England and a general "last of the Summer Wine" feeling about the place.
The thing is though, no photograph can capture all of that and looking at the photos from from my visit I'm afraid they just don't do the place justice.
Anyway don't take my word for it - go and have a look for yourself.

River Swale

The river that runs through Richmond is the river Swale and it cascades over a small waterfall on it's way. This makes for a very scenic and popular beauty spot.

Castle walk

There is a very scenic walk that goes around the castle and offers great views of the river below.

    For a moment I thought it was the one in London, and was surprised to see the castle picture!
