Well yesterday scuppered my plans so I readjusted! I've been to Stokesay Castle a few times over the years but I think its pretty and as its local......
There were loads of Swallows and House Sparrows which was good to see.
So onto Dudmaston Hall (which doesn't allow photos inside!!), there isn't much of a garden per se but there is a lovely park.
Before doing the park I had an excellent Carrot and Coriander soup and eyed up the cakes.
The greylags and canada's had a hissy fit. both had goslings.
Time for a cuppa. The chocky cake didn't match yesterday's standards.
I'm staying near Benthall a small house and garden. Great no! charming yes! I first visited one April when it snowed!!
I sat and watched the world go by and then returned to my hotel. Off tomorrow to Hay-on-Wye
