So many National Trust properties too far away, Brian
Brian Walbey: We have got Calke Abbey not far from us and a friend is one of the stewards there. Every so often they have day trips by coach for the helpers to other NT properties and we go along to make up the numbers on the coach, which is how we came to visit Biddulph. We also try and visit any NT properties whenever we go away on holiday as well.
I will look forward to this one Brian
Brian Walbey: It is a fine place to visit, I took a lot of shots so I hope I've picked a reasonable selection for the series later on.

This is lush and beautiful, Brian...bring it on!

A lovely place for a walk Brian!
Brian Walbey: Indeed it is Richard, I think you would be in your element at Biddulph.
This looks well manicured Brian.
Brian Walbey: The whole garden is very well looked after Chad.

I bet you were lucky to find no one else there Brian
Brian Walbey: It was one of their quieter days, but like most places it was a case of waiting for people to move out of the way.
Look at all that lush greenery, Brian!
Brian Walbey: The whole garden is very well looked after Ginnie, it's one of those gardens not based around loads of flower beds but lots of trees and shrubs.

What a garden! My garden is slowly turning to a desert, because of our continuing drought and the price of water. Well if it is dry one should also conserve water. So I am looking with envy at this greenscape.
Brian Walbey: I hadn't realised you were having drought conditions over there Louis, that is very worrying. As you probably know the north of England and Scotland are having terrible rain and flooding at the moment, one can only feel for the people whose houses have been flooded etc.

I love the green in this picture and it invites for a nice walk too. The grass is well kept smile
Brian Walbey: The National Trust really look after Biddulph very well, there are some nice areas to walk in.
I do love garden walks. Love the inset shot.
Brian Walbey: This is one of those gardens that doesn't have lots of flower beds but has woodland walks and so no instead.

This is my sort of garden; loos to be les work than something with lots of flowery things.
Brian Walbey: It is more of a woodland style garden than one loaded with flower beds and it has a nice Pinetum to walk through.
Went to these gardens just after they'd been opened - must go again, since the planting will have developed a great deal since then, I imagine.
Brian Walbey: Yes we really enjoyed our visit, not great on the flower side of things but many lovely trees and shrubs, and of course the Chinese temple area.
it's wonderful to see what is around the bend in the pathway Brian... this is very original composition....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter, more of what's round the bend when I post the full series.
