Last weekend we’ve been to Attingham Park, same day as we’ve visited the Alpaca farm.
As the lady from the ticket office told us is the feeding time for the deers, we’ve started with the walled garden, the woodland walk and the deer park walk.
The walled garden wasn’t that impressive, but it was as expected, considering it’s only March. The orchard looks nice and I’m sure it’s a treat to have a picnic in the summer.
In the greenhouse we saw delicious produces. As we left late, there weren’t any salads at the shop, but in the morning there are. Next time we’ll shop before the visit.
The woodland walk is great during this time of the year too, as there are so many snowdrops.
This is the bird watching shed. Inside there are some information about the birds that can be seen there.
Finally we arrived at the end of the deer park walk and we’ve seen the deer. The fallow deer looked lovely and they weren’t afraid of people.
Next stop: the house. It was built in the late 18th century, so it has the characteristic of a house from that period. We arrived late for the guided tour, so we had to ask the staff for details.
The ceiling rose was amazing. The flower looked very realistic, with a lot of details.
Here there are 3 very important pictures. The 1st Lord Berwick is the one that started the building of the house and the 2nd Lord Berwick, the one who employed John Nash to expend the house. Thomas became Lord when he was only 18 and he went into bankruptcy due to his disregard about the expenses.
John Nash was a renowned architect, as he was involved in transforming Buckingham House into Buckingham Palace, another very controversial subject.
This rooms are from the first building, the ladies rooms.
