Alan and I were out and about reasonably early this morning and walked to Hay on Wye to get haircuts then, with Penny and John, set out mid morning - in the drizzle - to visit Raglan Castle, about an hour's drive from here. It's a late medieval castle which was destroyed after the civil war in the mid 1600s. We had a good look around and enjoyed the visit very much. We had lunch in the cafe there, which included very nice luxury hot chocolates. Yum.
