A very special castle

As you know I love castles and post lots of pics of them. But this is a very special one as this is where my wonderful, talented and very clever daughter Ellie will be living for the next year.

Powis Castle

As regular readers know she is due to finish her degree in Archaeology, Heritage and History soon and she has just got a fantastic first job. She will be doing a one year internship as a Conservation Assistant at Powis Castle  in Wales , which is owned by the National Trust.Ironically it is one of the few castles in Wales that we haven’t visited but I am really looking forward to visiting her there.

It is an amazing opportunity as she will have training in all aspects of conserving the collections and I am so proud of her. She has been working part -time as a Conservation Assistant at a Tudor house in Worcester while at Uni and has also been volunteering at that property and at the local medical museum where she has been helping with archiving material.So all that extra work plus her academic work has really paid off.

So she is busy finishing off her last two assignments at the moment. She has already handed in her dissertation and she and her friends celebrated this week. Here they are in their hand – made celebration t-shirts and below that they all are outside the hall of residence where they lived in the first year.

Very well done sweetie – ‘may the sun always shine on you’.
