Stone to Great Haywood.

According to the weather forecast yesterday evening, today could be the last dry day for a few days. At least we have cracked the major set of locks from Stone to Great Haywood, so even if it does rain, at least Jo won’t get too wet working lots of locks, you see I do care!

Plenty of mooring space both above and below Great Haywood lock, so we have moored up below the lock. I feel a visit to Shugborough Hall after lunch to see how the walled garden is progressing.

We enjoyed our walk through the grounds of Shugborough Hall to the walled garden. No start on replacing the glass houses yet, still on-going. We bought some red potatoes and French beans which had been grown there. Life can’t get much better than this.

This is an old photo of the walled garden showing the original glass houses which have been pulled down, awaiting restoration.

This is another old photo after the glass houses were removed and before the garden was restored.
