The American Civil War comes to Whittington
This afternoon when I went for my walk around the village I came upon a group of American Confederate Civil War soldiers coming the opposite way by the castle.
It's not unusual to see soldiers in uniform in the village as lots of reenactors and living history groups put on weekends in the castle grounds. This weekend The American Civil War Society are there performing their drills (gunfire can be heard from my house) and authentic encampments.
I didn't pay to go in as they are such regular occurrences here.
