It’s been a lovely sunny day and we’ve been out with friend this afternoon for a walk round Dashwoods estate Buckinghamshire. For a few months you’re aloud to walk round the downstairs only of the manor house. But you can walk round the gardens most weekends.My blip for today is the most notorious of the follies and is reported to have once had up to 25 smaller statues in front of it described by the guide book as being in “Various Attitudes”. This is of course a polite way of saying that some of the statues were quite rude by today’s standards. Needless to say, they have long since disappeared. At the end of the walk we returned home for tea and cake. I hope you’ve all had a good weekend.
