Reasons for trip

It was a beautiful,sunny, autumn day, so we set off to visit Brodsworth Hall, and we were soon there, despite the busy traffic. It was easy to park and pay, but a little expensive I thought. The imposing structure of Brodsworth Hall made for superb photos next to the adjacent Victorian gardens, and we snapped away happily before going into the hall to the toilets, and for a hot drink and sandwiches. You could choose to sit outside or inside, we sat inside in a rather old and tatty room. But soon we were exploring the stunning Hall interior, and that didnt dissapoint at all. Volunteers were on hand to answer any questions, and it was evident the previous owners were very wealthy indeed. I loved the ceilings and the marble pillars and statues. Also the old paintings and embroideries. The kitchen was an eye opener. It had been used until recent times, but the really old part had been kept like a museum piece for years, all the old copper pans looked shiny and clean on the many shelves, We were allowed to take photos as long as we didnt use flash. I enjoyed the interesting story about Emma who managed the kitchen for many years until in her eighties she was unable to do it anymore. There were a few photos of her and her cosy chair remains. we also got told that Brodsworth Halls gardens had been used in the film about Churchill. (The darkest hour). No wonder they used the gardens, they are magnificent. Interesting topiary adds syle to the design of the gardens. I liked the fact there was palm trees and warm colours used in the bedding plants added to the vibrant glow, it looked almost Mediterranean. Different areas of the gardens had viewing points and seated areas allowed you to relax and take in the views. It was a long walk round, and each area was different, many unusual flowering shrubs to admire, and pause to take a closer look. We had another drink in the outside courtyard before leaving. A few cheeky chaffinches ready to snap up any crumbs.The surrounding countryside was rural with farm animals, old trees and fields, we enjoyed the experience.
