It was such a lovely day yesterday. We noticed that Consall Hall Landscape Gardens were open for the day so, as we hadn't been for quite a while, we decided to visit.
The gardens are next door to Consall Nature Park, where we often walk, and cover about seventy acres most of which are accessible to wheelchairs and pushchairs. Buggy tours with commentaries are also available for an extra charge and many people were taking these as there are four miles of paths around the garden.
There is much to see including lakes, woodlands, wildlife areas, ornamental pools, follies, terraces, steps and paved areas.
Azaleas and rhododendrons were in bloom
The Thatched Cottage where you can sit and draw or paint the vista of the Laund Pool seen through the window.
The gardens have been developed over the last fifty years by the Podmore Family, especially Mr W Podmore who still lives at the Hall.
