Ferrers Craft Centre

We spent a few days away in Leicestershire recently as our son and daughter -in-law live in the Leicestershire village of Belton. Whenever we visit the county we always spend an hour or two at a wonderful craft centre called Ferrers. It has a great coffee shop and some interesting craft shops and workshops as well as a garden centre.

I hope you enjoy this series of photographs taken there.

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.
