The Lord and Lady of North Cadbury are pleased to announce that they have visited the medieval seat of the famous barony in Somerset.
The Baron and Lady were very warm welcomed by the Churchwarden of the Camelot Parish, his wife and the Vice Chairman of the North Cadbury Village Hall Management Committee. It was a great honour to be well received.                          

Jörg and Regina were led through the very lovely villages of North Cadbury, South Cadbury and Galhampton and showed them the historic buildings from the ancient times. In the North Cadbury Village Hall was given an explicit overview over the forthcoming refurbishment works which are urgently required.                             

Up on the agenda was also a trip to the famous King Arthur's Cadbury Castle in South Cadbury and finally to the market town Castle Cary. The countryside with it's beautiful scenery, the typical old houses sometimes with thatched roofs and to meet the really very kindly and welcoming residents was lovely.

Lord and Lady North Cadbury give their cordially thanks to all the people which were involved in this marvellous and very impressive visit and for their generosity. Particularly thanks also to the Chairman of the North Cadbury Village Hall Management Committee who has arranged this visit.

'The Round House' in Castle Cary was built in 1779 as a temporary prison or lock-up. Very crazy!
