The dry weather continues and it's comfortable to walk in the surrounding fields now that they are harvested. The village where we live is in the centre of this photo.
The garden is now owned by the council and is a pleasant open space with wide pathways and grassy areas.
There are a number of bridges, not for decorative purposes
but for negotiating the railway
and the canal.
Both routes were cut through the garden at a later date.
The museum was originally the Sydney Hotel, the centre of entertainment for the pleasure gardens. A new extension at the back of the museum leads straight into the gardens. What a contrast this architecture is to the rest of the building.
I know which I prefer!
The view from the front of the museum is equally pleasing.
And inside, all manner of delights.
But my time was occupied in conversation and eating canapés!
