Wilton Castle Open Day

Sue and Alan Parslow, the current owners of Wilton Castle allowed Ross Civic Society to open the historic building to members of the pubic on Saturday, 9th September. With the help of English Heritage, Sue and Alan have been slowly restoring the castle and much has been accomplished since my last photographic visits in February and April of 2005.

Visitors on Saturday were able to enjoy guided tours and during the afternoon local historian, Heather Hurley gave a talk on the history of the castle and the people who have lived there.

Below, Sue Parslow can be seen on Saturday morning along with some of those who went along to view. Sue has invited me along to the castle again in the near future to take more photographs of the restoration progress. I will try to arrange this for a sunny day and will show updated photos in a future edition of Wyenot News.
