Wrest Park Sunday

Having been a tourist in my own county last month, I thought I'd try someone else's county for my July blog post.

These are some highlights from a visit to Wrest Park, near Silsoe, in Bedfordshire. It's a lovely place. I can't believe I've lived close to it for so long without visiting it.











Apparently, people who watch Bridgerton may recognise some of these interiors...!

Byron's Pool and Other South Cambridgeshire Pleasures

When you live somewhere you often don't do the touristy things, or at least I don't. So for a change, I took a walk along the river to Byron's Pool just outside Grantchester, went for a stroll round Trumpington Meadows and had a relaxing drink in Grantchester's famous Orchard Tearooms, surrounded by a few avian friends.
