Rosamund, Gertrude and Upton Grey

Turn left. Go 2.6 miles on to Upton Grey and turn right at the village pond. Go a quarter of a mile up the hill, passing the church on your right, and the Manor House drive is just beyond that, on your right, on a sharp bend. And so ended another nail biting, spouse cursing trip through the English country side.

There is so much to speak of in this final and favourite garden of our 2014 trip. For now I'll tell you the three best things that stole my heart away.

Off To The Pub

From his mid teens and through his twenties my father enjoyed renting a boat to row himself to Geldeston Locks on the River Waveney. There is now a small boat which takes paying customers along the same route. We signed up as a treat for Dad, who being "90 next birthday", hasn't taken the river route for several decades.
