We've been three times in the past couple of weeks and usually treat ourselves to a cup of tea and a scone afterwards. Unfortunately I'm not certain that the walk is a sufficient energy trade for the scone (on an energy in v energy out basis), although I suppose we could always walk around the lake more than once!!
The Italian Gardens aren't looking at their best at this time of the year, but I shall post some photographs later in the year.
The wonderful metal sculptures were created by Robin Wright and his daughter, Amy.
Lancelot 'Capability' Brown was employed to create the gardens and the mile long lake between 1759 and 1780, and 2016 will celebrate the tercentenary of his birth.
