Take a Walk in the Park Day

Apparently this is on 30 March, so make sure you get outdoors on Monday 🙂


Attingham Park is a popular place to visit as it is very close to Shrewsbury. Famous for snowdrops and the deer park, we popped in for for a brisk walk in the early spring sun a couple of weeks ago.


First stop, the walled garden. Work-in-progress as they have only recently begun to renovate this area. The aim is to re-create a productive kitchen garden with organic fruit and vegetables. It is a lovely sheltered spot to sit and bask in the sun.

Back out onto the woodland path which in May is filled with bluebells. And then into the deer park.


Attingham has around five miles of river, featuring beautiful stretches of the Severn and Tern.


And as the late afternoon shadows lengthened we headed back to the mansion-house and the exit.



If you enjoy a walk, long or short, then have a look at Jo’s site where you are welcome to join in.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. We were a bit late for the deer as they had been fed a few hours earlier so were more or less all laying down. Good to see them though.

  1. What a delightful walk and such a nice time of year too, with the early spring sunshine 🙂 You know how I adore walled gardens Jude, and those deer are so sweet. I need to get out to walk today, but only my same old boring park at usual 😦
