Mellerstain House

Today we were welcomed by Stephen, Operations Manager for Mellerstain, who gave us an interesting talk on the house and gardens.

We set off heading out of the estate and climbing a track which gave us splendid views of the surrounding area in glorious sunshine, such a difference to yesterday. We stopped for our coffee break overlooking the countryside and then went along an estate track where we joined the road.  Here, just by chance, we met up with James and Ann in their car driving towards the car park.  They joined us for lunch at the café besides the house and it was lovely to see them and have them join us as we rambled around the gardens and lake in the afternoon.  After the rain yesterday the off-road sections were very muddy under the trees.  I would like thank James and Ann for reccying the rambles and paying the entrance fees for us all to enjoy the beautiful grounds.  Also, Bernard and I would like to thank Dave who each day towed the FSU and together with John helped load and unload the MSU which was a great help to us.  Judy
