LLama’s and Emu’s in Horwich

This is a very unusual day for Charlie, as he finishes up admiring a herd of Llama’s and Emu’s wandering around the grounds of Lord Leverhulme in Horwich.  There are several interesting features in these grounds, including a 14th Century Tithe Barn which serves as a café and a function room.  Further along, hidden in the woods, something even more surprising.

To this day there are the remains here of a replica castle built as a copy of the ruined Liverpool Castle.  In other words, the replica was built not as the original Liverpool Castle would have been, but as an exact copy of the actual ruins in Liverpool.

Philanthrophy takes many forms, but building replica ruins seems to me to be someone getting carried away !
