Imagine coming to a ruined castle, walking through its gardens and into the woodlands and stumbling across one of the largest adventure playgrounds in the country. When you do this at Lowther, you have found the lost castle.
Designed by CAPco, the Curious Adventure Play company, the lost castle is an architectural echo of Lowther Castle itself, built from 18,000 metres of sustainable timber. There are ramps and steps and a firepole and a maze of turrets, zipwires, walkways and slides. There is a toddlers’ area and a sandpit and a rope mesh and there are places to sit for spectators and resting yompers. Young and old leave the lost castle with big smiles – it is fun, fun, somewhere to lose yourself in a whizz of excitement.
