Calke Abbey Garden - Bits & Pieces 3/7

Continuing at Calke Abbey a few miscellaneous shots taken in or near the garden I showed last week.  A nice double gateway shot, the first being one of the gates into and out of the walled garden, and the one opposite leads into a small area of woodland with a fine walk back to the main house.
