Season of mists

We have been stuck in a mizzley, murky and very grey week here in this part of Yorkshire, so I thought I would share a stroll that hubby and I took a week ago.

We didn't have much time as he was between night shifts, and the walk down through the park in Wentworth is always a favourite when time is short.

I know some of you saw the Dan Cruikshank programme this year which featured Wentworth Woodhouse - one of Englands secret stately homes. We locals are waiting with baited breath for renovations to start so that we can get a peak inside the house once more. I noticed on this walk how blackened the house is after standing in the Yorkshire coal fields for so many years.

The park was wearing her Autumnal colours and finery.

The skies were very grey, but it was the weekend that was also very warm.

There are a couple of big fishing lakes at the bottom of the park that are always very well utilised.

Hope you enjoyed the stroll.

Aren't all those autumn colours just so beautiful. I enjoyed the DC programme, well the whole series actually. He is so enthusiastic.
