Sue had suggested we visit Bowood, not having been there since I visited for the children's adventure area, I wasn't sure what to expect. But it wasn't the main parkland, but the woodland area we were visiting. There is a fabulous collection of Rhododendrons dating back to 1854 when 300 were bought for £4.15s, so many different sorts as well as Camellias and Magnolias, with a carpet of bluebells in many places. It has been home to the Lansdowne family for 250 years
I took some great photos, hard not to really with such wonderful colours, so here they are:
Lacock had lunch in the Red Lion, and then for a look round the Abbey
Woody Fox's creatures.
