Weeping Window

Sunday 24 June 2018. I wanted to watch the England game at 1pm and to further rest my knee. What better way to fill in the morning with a visit to the Weeping Window poppy exhibition at Carlisle Castle. It was just 30 miles to drive and I was first through the gates when they opened at 10am so that I could get some pictures before the crowds obscured the views. Although the castle is run by English Heritage, there was no admission fee for the duration of the exhibition so I made a charitable donation.

The stewards advised that the best views are in the afternoon when the sun shines directly onto the cascade of poppies. Even so, it was quite spectacular and I wished that I’d made the effort to view the installation when it was at the Tower of London.
