It seems like "Casty" was short for something, if you have any more details please let me know!

Ashchurch and Tewkesbury

Yesterday i headed down to Gloucestershire to Ashchurch. Tewkesbury is just over two miles away so i walked over to the town with it's fine abbey and many timber framed buildings. Well worth the walk! You can see my photos here.
