Baddesley Clinton re-visited



This is by far my favourite National Trust house in our area.




I have taken lots of photographs this time, walking around, catching it from all angles





The bridge over the moat, the only way in




I like the fact that it's surrounded by water, the shape of it, the colours




It's magnificent




It's built around a courtyard





and this is my favourite angle. I never tire of looking at this.




There are always ducks around the house




Two male mallards were having a fight - it was vicious. A woman tried to separate them to no avail. They totally ignored her.





The grounds at Baddesley are small, and as always, we were after a good walk, so we walked every single inch of the park.





Over the bridge




around the lake




good reflections











along the stream - a good view of the house from here





fungi







the path that leads to the walled garden




the walled garden











and we had come full circle, back to the house.




But, we wanted to walk more, so we took the path that leads to




St Michael's church





had a quick look inside







a small organ for a small church.




We continued until we reached the woods which were too muddy, so we retraced our steps




a last look at the church, and to the car park, and home.
