- Wimpole Park.
After the fog had burned off this morning, MWNN drove me and his sister to Wimpole Hall Estate.
We arrived at lunchtime, unpacked the chairs and picnic and sat in the sun enjoying our food and tea.
After lunch, we gave Ron a short walk around the house. There were sheep in the fields and notices warning that lambing would be happening soon, so dogs were to be kept on quite a short lead.
The view from the house is lovely, and gives some idea of the size of the estate.
Soon it was time for tea. We sat on the terrace outside the old Rectory (1597) which houses the restaurant, as it was too hot to leave Ron in the car.
We were joined by a pair of chafinches, eager to share the freshly-baked cakes. Unlike other diners, we left crumbs on the plate for our discerning feathered friends.
A short 30 minuted drive later, we were home again.
