# 130 Weekend outing: Shugborough Estate

What a lovely, sunny weather we've been having here in England, it feels really good to look up and see a bright blue sky and feel the warmth of the sun on your skin.

Yesterday we visited Shugborough, near Stafford in the Middlands. As usual we did a tour of the house, walked around the gardens and explored the parkland.

Here are some photos I took.

Front of the house.

Back of the house and formal garden.

The library.

The park.

Lovely chestnuts, unfortunately there weren't many.

  1. That's so weird seeing Shugborough in your photos - I live literally just down the road - literally! It's quite weird having a (kind of ) stately home on your doorstep. I pass it pretty much every day without so much of a second thought which is bad really as it's a lovely building.

    Hope you enjoyed my "part of the world" as it were!! :)
