Last weekend I went to see my Dad, and after a cup of tea we went for a little walk. We set off from Cuckney Church and took a footpath up a mound (the remains of a Motte and Bailey), which gave us a lovely view of the church and the meadow by the river.
We then carried on up the bank
and crossed a few fields where there were thousands of ox eye daisies in flower.
We passed a field where there were several young foals...
and then saw a beautiful Lodge - gate house to the Welbeck estate.(I'd love to live there!)
The view from the Lodge is a timeless British landscape...
and the drive to the lodge is a Lime tree avenue - a continuation of the one in Clumber Park, for those of you who know it.The lime trees were in flower and smelled wonderful!
We finally made our way back through the village of Norton, and back to Cuckney Church.
I do miss living in the countryside, even if I did get quite a lot of nettle rash!
Hope you enjoyed the walk
Thanks for looking!
