Sheffield Park Gardens

Sunday afternoon around here was a bit of a grey day, but as DH had spent most of Saturday replacing various broken fixtures in the bathroom, by Sunday afternoon he was in serious need of Fresh Air. We headed out to Sheffield Park Gardens which is another National Trust property. We really do have a lot of them in this area! The house at Sheffield Park is privately owned, but the gardens are quite breathtaking.

They are arranged around a series of lakes which do a fine line in water-lilies.

The autumn colours were just beginning; a promise of future glory.

The children were quite happy lying on their stomachs, disturbing the  aquatic life with a stick. There were also some rural visitors to the garden...

All in all, a very gentle afternoon out.
