Dorset group: Sherborne 11 Mar 2018

15 Mar 2018 | Dorset Group

Although the weather remained overcast the rain held off as a merry band of 12 including a visitor from London enjoyed Sherborne Park and environs. Passing through the hamlet of Oborne we explored St Cuthbert Old Chancel before being greeted by new season lambs at Pinford Farm. Trudging through thick mud we reached Sherborne Deer Park where we picnicked within sight of the deer including a white hart. A comfortable stroll through Capability Brown's Sherborne Park led us past the old castle and Sherborne House....

Canons Ashby and Preston Capes

11 Mar 2018 | South Midlands Group

Twenty of us, including some very well turned out gents in Wellington boots, set out from the National Trust property at Canons Ashby in South Northamptonshire on a nine mile walk to Preston Capes and back. We had sunny weather in the morning so we got to see good views of Everdon and Snorscomb before taking our lunch break in Preston Capes. The weather held until the end of the afternoon when there was just a little light rain. We returned to the start point in time for refreshments in the National Trust Tea Room, GOC heaven!
