About the event
Graham will try to cover the history of this estate whilst Jo Heading provides a knowledgeable commentary on the natural history including some interesting tree specimens and the dramatic carved rocks of Lake Wood. Designed to provide picturesque and romantic walks in the 19th Century, perhaps this escapism is even more important in the 21st!
