Even a grand mansion benefits from a little bit of careful framing. The house is now the Northern College but the gardens, from where this is taken, are open to the public.
Some nice variation from parkland to ‘Union Jack’ beds and then the slope up to a folly castle. Good place for picnic. On the way back we took in the fernery and a walk glowing with camelias. Finally, a view of the restored glasshouse which is majestic.
