The nearly Yellow Stone Road

For the past few days our volunteers and friendly contractor Barry have been resurfacing a section of path, running from the Rock gate and onwards towards the Palladian Bridge. This looks, I am sure you will agree, rather splendid, if not ever so slightly new and shiny. Eventually all the park paths will be redone in this South Cerney stone, making for a more pleasant walk, we hope!

Steve Yabsley Records His Week

Steve Yabsley and Jim near the Bridge

We had a visit from Steve Yabsley yesterday. Steve hosts the weekday lunchtime show on Radio Bristol and came to have a look around the Park. Jim the Gardener showed him around and discussed the many splenders that can be seen. These included the Bridge (of course), lakes, wildlife, Wilderness, Cascade, Rock Gate, Serpentine Lake plus many more.

Hopefully various pieces,  about the Park will be aired sometime in early October. We will let you know exactly when they go out.

Meantime just to let you know, it’s pouring down outside, which will keep the lakes topped up at least!
