Hello Blogville! Its been a few days since my spooky adventures. I hope they didn’t scare you too much!
Anyway Yesterday I have another historic adventure, I got to go for a run around the lands of Buckland Abbey. Its not far from my home so an easy trip to do. Unfortunately Being a rabbit I’m not allowed to explore in the house so if there are Spooky residents I can’t tell you but the views are amazing and the grounds are extensive so at least I got to stretch my paws….
The Abbey was founded in 1278 as a Cistercian Abbey by Amicia Countess of Devon then later after King Henry the 8th dissolved the monasteries after getting upset with the Pope in Rome and the Catholic Church. It seems that was a bit of a scandal as he wanted a divorce and they wouldn’t give him one. King Henry the 8th sold it to Sir Richard Grenville the Younger who started the conversion to a stately home. It was the sold to Sir Francis Drake where it remained in the family for years till eventually being given to Captain Richard Owen Tapps Gervis Meyrick by The Dowager Lady Seaton, Born Elisabeth Fuller-Elliot-Drake who then sold it to Captain Arthur Rodd who then gave it to the National Trust in 1947
Well I never who would have thought that a king could be scandalous? Not me I can tell you!
Hello Blogville and welcome to another Spooktacular adventure with yours truly Little Miss Titch
Yesterday I had another adventure but this time it was to Okehampton Castle. Construction began in 1068 and it was listed in the Doomsday book
There is a ghost story regarding a Lady Howard who was supposed to have murdered 3 husbands and 2 of her children in the 1700th century and was cursed to pick every blade of grass at the castle until she had picked them all she could never have peace. She rides from the gate house at Fitzford house in Tavistock to the castle every night in a carriage made of the bones of her victims driven by a headless coach man with a one eyed hound running beside her .She then brings back the blade of grass to lay at the gate! Whether this is true I can’t tell you but it makes for and interesting tale!
Hello Blogville Welcome to The Wonderful world of Adventuring with Yours Truly Little Miss Titch!
Yesterday it was a secret but today I can share it with you all! With the new season upon us mum thought it was a good time to visit a Haunted castle!
The Secret is… this is Berry Pomeroy Castle, was built in the 15th century and was owned by the Pomeroy family then rebuilding started in 1560 by the Seymours with and Elizabethan Mansion in the 1600. It was meant to be a match for Longleat and Audley but was never completed and finally abandoned by 1700 amid blood curdling stories. Whether it is truly Haunted well that is a secret I can’t Tell you….you need to see for your selves to see if it’s true!
Gosh its been a few weeks since I last Posted and well I have learnt it is a funny old life! I’ve grown again when I got weighed in the week I was 1.542kg! Mum is moaning I’m getting to heavy to carry around in her arms all the time….But she still does it “giggles”
I got to have my first proper adventure at the beach….
And had lots of fun digging holes in the sand….
Mum’s wild bird pal Bird the Jackdaw still comes to visit, funny old bird! And the Hedgehogs which are these spikey creatures that look cute in a strange way and are grumpy by nature have come back after being absent for a few weeks. Mum said there are 2 big fat adults and at least one juvenile, one of which has taken up residence in one of the nest boxes so its busy here feeding the 500….well that’s what mum says. Anyway I am still figuring out how I want to do things so please forgive me for being a bit hit and miss here in Blogville.
