We did two separate walks today. One at Charlecote Park National Trust property and then afterwards we walked the Welcombe Hills in Stratford and ended up at the monument which provided fine views across Warwickshire. Very windy of course and up at the monument it was very, very bracing!
If anyone watched BBC Countryfile program last night then you would have seen that Charlecote Park was featured as they reported on what had been done during lockdown and the preparations needed to reopen.
Not all of the parkland was open but enough of it to wander about and keep away from other visitors. Cafe open for takeaway drinks and food although J had baked bread rolls for us so we sat on a windswept bench for a picnic of sorts.
There was a herd of fallow deer resting under trees and we spent a good fifteen minutes taking photos. At first the deer were lying down but after a while quite a few stood up and splendid looking they were too. Eventually I managed to get J to leave them there and finally we headed back to the car and drove to Stratford for walk number two.
