Sunday Afternoon Windy Walk

My, it was blustery on Sunday, and with only a short window of opportunity for a walk, we decided to stay local and walk down the park in Wentworth. I know you've been with me at least a hundred times before, but humour me.

We peeped through the gates of the very large stable block. The block is equally the size of the stables at Chatsworth and we always wish it had as good a tea room.





And then on past the big house - I like the way that this photo turned out as I shot it into the sun.

Onwards through the deer park - didn't spot any deer though.
And we ended up by the lakes - where it was really cold and very very breezy!

A walk that certainly blew the cobwebs away.

We have places where we go on regular walks too. It's nice to have such beautiful places so close to home.

I always enjoy your walks, Diane! Love the iron gates and the view to the stable block! I can't wait to see the real thing - it will soon be daffodil timexx:)

ahh, we were there on Sunday also! I'm surprised we didn't bump in to each other hehe! It was so windy that my lunch blew away (we had to sit outside because of the dog!) xx

I did enjoy the Dan C programme about it last year. He always makes good TV.

Gorgeous walk! I love the very first gate. Beautiful.

It looks lovely as always but I confess that walking in the wind is something I avoid if possible. It's the one sort of weather that I really dislike. The stable block is very like the one at Chatsworth even down to the fountain in the middle.

Lovely photos. That first one looks like a smiley face!

Just love the close ups of the gate taken against the light, Diane. x
