It is a non stop job at the moment dealing with the falling leaves. We had a team of 3 blowing them off the paths and grass areas nearly all day yesterday, only to find a whole new carpet has arrived this morning. Still they make the place look really great and of course it’s great fun using the blowers.
Our new bird feeders are well and truly up and running with a constant stream of visiting birds (and squirrels) to them. They definitely add colour to the whole place.
It is always good to meet followers of these pages, like I did on Wednesday in the garden at Dyrham. Any comments or feedback would be gratefully received.
Just a quick note to say we all finished the walk from Newark Park to Prior Park, via Horton and Dyrham, and no one got any blisters (to my knowledge). More on this when I return from my Holidays.
For the next three days most of the outdoor staff for Bath & South Cotswold and lots of the volunteers are going to walk part of the Cotswold Way. We are starting at Newark Park and finishing here at Prior Park. On the way we will be taking in Horton Court and Dyrham Park. All rather nicely connected by the Cotswold Way. We will hopefully be having fun, as well as informing people about the work we do and the properties we look after.
The walk should officially finish outside of the National Trust Shop near Bath Abbey at 4pm on Saturday. Our rather splendid Shepherd’s Hut should be there as well. Come along and see us if you can.
