Calke Abbey – A Short Woodland Wander

During a short break in autumn in Leicestershire, where we stayed with our son, daughter-in-law and two granddaughters, we made a second visit to the NT site, Calke Abbey, a wonderful place for walks. On our second visit within a fortnight we took a short woodland walk around a reservoir, just a few miles in areas of the woodland.

I shall share my photos in a gallery, which follows below. Enjoy! I hope the gallery manages to convey some of the atmosphere of peace and calm that we felt 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.
