Dunham Massey Estate

Map picture

 

Today we set off on foot to the Dunham Massey Estate, which we last visited in 2005, and the hall was then covered in Scaffolding and plastic sheeting whilst they were carrying out major repairs. We were looking forward to seeing the hall in all it’s glory. To get to the estate from the canal you have to first cross under the canal via this under bridge.
