Seven intrepid walkers braved the rain to undertake a delightful walk around part of Laureen’s ride.
We set off down the path
with occasional views of lush meadows
as we walked the wooded pathway
We crossed fields
before reentering the wood and crossing the stream
Rich Cheshire farmland was in abundance. One farm specialised in greenhouse chrysanthemums.
We took our break under the shelter of a large tree
On our return we swung by Peover Hall.
The ducks there did not seem to mind the weather
And the rain made the lawn look fresh
On the path leading up to the church the rhododendron gave a great show
St. Lawrence Church sat timelessly
at the edge of the hall it no doubt once served
The sundial hinted of those times
but today it was particlarly useless.
The wall garden was kept from plebeian view, no hint of what lay behind the walls was shared with the passer by.
The main drive was viewable from the road
We headed back to the cars via the side of the hall
Bluebells were in abundance as we walked down the lane
