We wandered through the village and then down to Wortley Hall (I know I have taken you here before so I won't repeat the story of the place). It is a lovely place though and well worth a visit if you are in the area. It is now a hotel (of sorts) and they do allow you to walk through the very lovely and historic gardens without charging you.
I spied a very twisty Wisteria branch,
and as this side of the hall is in a very sunny and sheltered dip, some of the blooms were already out.
The old stable block to the hall is very neglected, but looks quite pretty in its decay.
The huge walled gardens are tended by gardeners for Heeley City Farm in Sheffield and they garden totally organically. Some of the produce is used in the hall, and a lot of the produce is used in the cafe at Heeley City Farm. I was interested in the history of the gardens and also the fact that the gate is original.
It is still in good repair.
These borders are ablaze with colour in summer - everything is just starting to wake up.
i'd kill for that metal gate!
I do love simple people!
Happy Mother's Day! (today or tomorrow?! ..Mother's Day in Italy is on the 2th Sunday of May)
What a lovely day you had with your mum, I hope you get spoilt tomorrow!
It looks like my sort of place, it's on my ever growing list!
Nothing wrong with simple pleasures and money cannnot buy them.
Thanks so much for the tour and I will add it to my list as well.
Happy Mothers Day from Brisbane - our is in May.
I've loved going on a walk with you. There is so much to love about your country, the buildings, the gardens, the GATES!!! Thank you for sharing.
What an interesting place Wortley looks, I've really enjoyed your photos - glad you and your Mum had a great time:)
All those pictures just make me want to visit England even more! It's so beautiful in the countryside outside the major cities. It's so beautiful and it's awesome to hear about it being Mother's Day over there! Cool!
