Life and Thyme!

Sheriff Hutton.

Who? Not a who but a what,  it’s a village with a castle that I kept hearing about linked to Richard3rd and his wife Anne Neville. The castle was owned by the Neville family and Richard was placed in the Neville household as part of his training as a member of the Royal family. Sheriff Hutton is a village between Malton and York and I couldn’t figure out whether it was owned by English Heritage or the National Trust, nor when it was open to the public. Only one solution , go and see for myself. And there dominating the whole village it is, in a parlous state of ruin, even for an English castle, and in private hands. Not open for the public , fenced off to prevent public access but with a footpath all round it. So here it is, and for more information look here and here
