This afternoon the sun was shining and we fancied a different walk, so
we visited Chippenham Park (sometimes called Hare Park), at Chippenham,
Cambs. This is a private property but it is open to the public on
certain days. The spring flowers were out. Kings Edward VII and George V
came here for shooting parties in the early 1900s.
Don't confuse this with Chippenham in Wiltshire. This park is surrounded by a wall that would have cost a small fortune when it was built centuries ago. The wall is many miles long.
This Sunday, the gardens were open at Chippenham Park so we visited them to see the flowers. Unlike NT properties (we have subscriptions so visits are "free") we had to pay to pay to get in but, this once, it was worth it. Some of the beds are wonderful. It was good for me to do more walking as well.
