traipsing round the countryside 2

And this is Stanton Hall today. It is set in rolling countryside, has lovely gardens on several levels that you can walk through, and is maintained entirely by the owner and his wife, who grow and sell a huge array of healthy plants and trees.

There are polytunnels too, that in today's sunshine were hotter than the hobs o' hell, as they say round here. We didn't linger in them, fearful that the soles of our sensible sandals might melt.
