Bowood 2016 #13: Woodland Walks (Thursday 12 May)
This was my first visit to Bowood for over a week after the negative experience at the House & Gardens, but I called in at the Woodland Walks on my way home for a quick blip.
The gateman there had spoken to Bowood staff and it seems that others have complained with the same concern, and it seems there are plans afoot to possibly issue gatemen with tablets that have card reader attachments to admit season ticket holders.
He suggested I write to the staff about my experience and told me that Lord Lansdowne always reads everything sent in about Bowood, so I may well do that.
I also had a brief chat with Ellie at the portable café. I was intrigued as to how they got electricity as there was none at the entry kiosk. It turned out they had a special hook-up from the Kennel Lodge opposite and that they also had gas, their coffee machine being a dual gas/electric apparatus.
I took a handful of pictures only but had the usual choice dilemma. This one won out because it has the feeling of secrecy and exploration, which is one of the things I like there, more than the actual rhododendrons, although I now notice it is not dissimilar to last week's. Oh well.
