I left Dad's and it was dull grey and chilly. It would have been easy to put my feet up and read but I decided I ought to go SOMEWHERE and headed to the Gibberd Garden which is five minutes down the road.
The Gibberd was created by Sir Frederick Gibberd the planner of Harlow New Town. It's not a pretty pretty garden but a fascinating place to visit.
and shock horror I never went in to the tea room.... next time!
