Places I love: Pendragon Castle, Mallerstang

This place has it all: a crumbly castle set on a hill above the River Eden as its heads out of the hills to the plains below. It even has tales of Arthurian Knights, dragons, and a spectral chicken. Yes a spectral chicken that will appear before anyone who tries to find the gold rumoured buried beneath the stones. Find the gold and the chicken will come and scratch and claw the earth until its hidden again. Love it.
