Reasons for trip

We travelled through the beautiful Herefordshire countryside in what started out as a lovely sunny day – which then deteriorated! Our visit to Berrington Hall was pre-booked, and although the building itself was closed, there were acres of parkland and attractive gardens to walk around.

The grounds were originally created by Lancelot Capability Brown known as England’s Greatest Gardener. Work is ongoing to preserve some unique features of the walled garden, so parts are still closed while the conservation work takes place. Spring flowers and shrubs were in abundance and the blossoms were starting to appear in the orchard. I was amazed to see how many varieties of apples were being grown.

We decided to buy the traditional National Trust cream tea from the kiosk to eat outside in the stable courtyard. Although delicious, this turned out to be a bit of a challenge. With paper plates and disposable cutlery threatening to blow away on the breeze. By the time we had spread the butter, jam and cream on the scones, it had rather started to rain. So, it was a case of jamming it into your mouth with one hand whilst holding a brolly in the other! The story of Spring 2021 I suppose!

It was good to escape anyway.
