i was at a wedding what a lovely day her very special day. my wife is in a wheelchair its her best friend next to me, its not a special chair just slightly wider than some with a leg rest, the nightmare started when she parked, (NOT there) its says wedding on the gate and then its park over there (in the car park) WRONG, first off a load of deep stones any stones try pushing a wheelchair over that! so she had to get out and walk through the gate down the step the gate is its barely wide enough for the chair and then it goes down hill from there, theres a step and when you get over that theres a ruts either side of the path just deep enough to get all the wheels stuck in so you either need several people to lift the chair and occupant out of the ruts so she got out 3 or 4 steps back in, then its across the grass to the next gate, Ah the next gate its getting narrower the gate it open towards you down the step, its a squeeze and the paths get narrower the chair falls in even deeper ruts both sides theres no help, so i had to get the wife out of the her chair yet again, believe me it hurts her every time she get in and out, got the chair out the 4" deep ruts you know where the flower border meets the grass, back in the chair then we're off to the wedding tent. cool cant get there they've got slabs and the wheels get stuck in the gap around the slabs very nearly tipped her out OOPS had to get her out of the chair yet a gain and than its a carpet relief at last. Ah then there was the trip to the marquee for the sit down meal back the way we came and the all that entailed. and the entrance to the tent a big threshold 2 inch high out she got still no help. the caterers were quite helpful where they could, we'll leave you to sort the table as you need it. its very difficult when your leg has no muscles and wont bend and is stuck out in front of you and every touch hurts A LOT. the loo was very clean and tidy just getting there was a experience to be missed No step as such just a small steep ramp about a foot wide oh and then a small step down... you can never have enough steps and ruts when you have a wheelchair, and all this bearing in mind my wife rang the management and explained in detail and they said it was fairly disabled friendly. HUM.... !! my advise is if you can walk its a perfect setting. but if you have or confined to a wheelchair think about it. take help it seems to me that all be it disabled friendly in places the management has never tried to move them self's in a wheelchair where you're not able to walk or walking is so difficult even with crutches.. Oh and can't park on the grass ...! cant park there, DON'T park there ..... thank you for a lovely day
