Dunster Memorial Garden 1/7

While we were on holiday in Minehead, Somerset last year we went to the nearby village of Dunster, famous for its castle which is owned by the National Trust.  Dunster also has a fine church, St.George’s, of which more next week, and next to this church is a lovely Memorial Garden dedicated to those who lost their lives in both World Wars.  Entry to the garden is from both the church and the road outside.

I'm a glutton for these churches, Brian, as you know...and now the gardens!
Brian Walbey: I know you are Ginnie. The gardens this week and the church next week, you will be surprised at the inside.
Lovely place Dunster. I shall enjoy this series I think Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes we liked Dunster although it was damp and dull while we were there sadly.

Beautiful setting, the garden with the church in the back. Wonderful. Must have been a great place to visit.
Brian Walbey: Yes this garden and church are both lovely. Maureen enjoyed a peaceful sit down while I took this weeks pictures.

a lovely garden to sit down there, to meditate a bit and to slow down - like Chris I like the red-brown local stone.
Brian Walbey: Maureen had a lovely quiet si while I took this weeks pictures. I also like the colour of the stone.
It looks a peaceful setting Brian smile
Brian Walbey: It is Martin, the church shields the garden quite a bit from traffic passing through the village and its associated noise.
Looks like the start of another fine series Brian.
Brian Walbey: I hope that's how you feel by the end of the week then Fred, thanks.
Lovely garden, and it looks well cared for.
Brian Walbey: It is a really peaceful garden Sheila.
It would be hard not to find peace of mind in this lovely setting, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes Maureen sat quietly while I took some pictures, and it was very peaceful.

What a delight. The red stonework of the church is typical of the area. Dunster is a delightful place. We had lunch here in a pub one Saturday on one of our Exmoor Boys' Bike Weekend and my front tyre exploded whilst we were sat in the garden!
Brian Walbey: Sounds like a problematic post lunch trip to buy a new tyre then Alan. Dunster is very nice, the castle is quite impressive.

A lovely red sandstone Church, by the look of it, Brian - look forward to the photos of it later
Brian Walbey: Yes I like the colour of the stone also. I'm showing the garden this week and the church proper next week.
Looks very well planted, nice shot
Brian Walbey: Yes is is a fine garden John.
A lovely perspective to this beautiful church Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, you will see more of it next week.

Looks very English Brian and a lovely warm colour of stone.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is lovely coloured stone and a nice place to go in.
I shall look forward to this trip round a lovely place, Brian
Brian Walbey: I'm pleased to hear that Graeme. I was back near home yesterday, Tuesday, we had a family funeral in Meldreth, the last of my Dads generation sadly.
This is a lovely POV- I love those gardens!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth.

I'd rather sit in the garden than in the church, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I don't mind either Ray, as you will see next week it is quite spectacular church.
