I am going on holiday soon…. now I know this is surprising since I don’t go away very often (cough) but this is slightly different as it will be in the UK! I am off to Shropshire and Cheshire. I am kind of excited by this, I have missed the joys of my own country and the delights of sitting in a national trust café with a cup of tea. Of course now that I have been diagnosed with type II diabetes my cake eating days are long gone but I think I can replace the cake with a scone and a brisk walk :)
The problem is how will I fit everything into a week? There are so many places I want to show Trish that are in the area!
English Heritage has Wenlock Priory and Stokesay Castle. And the National Trust? Attingham Park, Erdigg, Chirk Castle, Shugborough, Benthall Hall, Dudmaston, Little Moreton Hall, Biddulph Grange, Dunham Massey, Lyme Park and Speke Hall – the later two are probably musts as Lyme has never appeared in the blog and Speke I’ve never been to. There is also somewhere else on the list that I’m not revealing as I think I Trish will get a shock! :)
I could do a reccy of them for the National Trust scones blog.
