Now we shall go into the castle. I wasn't sure what to expect. I found it dark and gloomy inside with light coming through the small windows.
And lots of dark heavy beams and furnishings. I couldn't live there. Ha guess I wouldn't make a very good princess. The stairways and halls to the next levels were steep and narrow.

The entry

through the peaked doorway at the rear is the great hall.

Beautiful stained glassworks.

A tiny private chapel down in the basement area.

I love that castle!!! When asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I always said "a princess!" :) I would also like to wear the long dresses they did back then. Of course this castle isn't THAT old, but I mean the clothes they wore back in the times of the older castles.

Not knowing the age of this castle, it seems to me
that not much of the "old" was kept. Renovation
sometimes diminishes or totally erases historic value.

It is a beautiful place, Trish, thanks for sharing your
visit with us.

And ... I am happy to live in the here and now. :)

Jo..I believe trish said it was about 100 years old...so not that old at all. I might have to hang a few different pictures on the wall, but other than that..the rest can stay...even the red velvet couch! LOL :D Jutta we'd have to share the studio I'm afraid. Hey you could have that little chapel for your studio. :D :evil: :lol: :lol:

Hi Trish,

I've been to Fort Langley but never knew there was a castle nearby! Wow! Is anyone living there now.... just wondering because the kitchen looks like it has paraphanalia lying about, papers, dishcloth etc. that would suggest someone lives there.

We do have a small castle here in Squamish and someone lives in it. It's not as big or as grand, and not quite as old (I think 1930-ish) but still really neat. It has a dry moat around it so you have to use a bridge to approach the front door. I've visited the people that live in it so luckily got a private tour :) It's also very dark on the inside - they say it's haunted, I almost believe them! :eek:
