Thornbridge Hall - Part 1 1/6

Quite by accident during our Bakewell holiday last year we came across a leaflet for Thornbridge Hall Gardens, somewhere we hadn’t heard of before. They consist of 12 acres of gardens surrounding Thornbridge Hall, set in the estates parkland. Designed in the 1890's, the Gardens were created to produce a vision of '1000 shades of green' from the owners bedroom window and are a perfect example of Victorian engineering to manipulate the landscape into a series of Garden Rooms.

This looks very civilised indeed Brian
Brian Walbey: Rather nice but the house itself isn't open to the public.

A lovely setting for the house, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Set in the beautiful Peak District countryside Pauline.
I certainly like the gardens by the stairs.
Brian Walbey: As you will see this week and next the gardens are beautiful.

Shucks, another of those places. Every time I try to imagine, what it would be like to live in such a place. The garden looks promising.

I'd not heard of this before, either. I'd been passed it several times, too and was very close to it last week when I led Frank and Elizabeth through Ashford towards the tearoom at Monsal Head (which closed just a s we got there sad ) It looks a fine place and reminded me Shuborough (old house with grounds in front of it)
Brian Walbey: Worth dropping in should you pass that way again Alan although opening times are limited so it is worth checking their website before you go, oh and they have a very good tearoomsmile At least F.& E.got to see the beauty of Monsal Dale a bit, did they come to Lathkill with you, it is only a short walk to the farm where we have rented a cottage, and to which we are returning on 10th.September for a few days.
Its a fine garden, Brian.Nicely captured.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frank. I gather you passed nearby to this place last week on your way to a closing Monsal Head tearoom, at least you, and Elizabeth, got to see what a beautiful place Monsal Dale is.
We've been meaning to take a look there - thanks for the reminder, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Well worth a visit Tom although opening times are limited so it is worth checking their website before you go, oh and they have a very good tearoom smile
