Although we have visited the house on a number of occasions and in the past along with our guests enjoyed the experience immensely we have never walked through the grounds and woods beyond the immediate garden areas. This week-end we joined a group from the Mercedes Club and walked in a circulatory route guided by the Head Ranger for the Estate. It was beautiful with vast areas carpeted in Bluebells, many, many photo opportunities, but it was the additional dialogue from our guide that imparted so much information on the changing face of the landscape tree development and succession. It really struck home that as he explained to our group he had for a brief spell charge of the legacy of some three hundred year old trees for a fraction of their life to pass on to another future generation. During our walk we were afforded the chance to view inside a family mausoleum tucked away in the trees and designed like a pyramid on the outside and internally circular in shape. Try to do this walk soon whilst the Bluebells are still in bloom it is really fantastic.
