After the poor weather of previous months, September began with the hope of an 'Indian Summer'. My first day volunteering at Wallington this month, was on a day, which can only be described as changeable. We did manage to do some of our work during some sunny spells. The Walled Garden continues to change and provide visitors with some wonderful areas of colour and imaginative planting to admire during their visit.
Trees in East and West Woods are starting to change colour. Autumn is making an early appearance this year! The property still has a large number of events to stage before the end of the year. It continues to be a very busy time for all of the staff and volunteers.
Wednesday 28 September, 10.00 a.m. - 1.00 p.m.
Join our medieval historian Michael Thomson as he recounts the tale of the Battle of Otterburn, the legendary Chevy Chase, and examines the part played by one of Northumbria's most dashing sons, Harry Hotspur!
The talk will be followed by a delicious light lunch in the Clocktower Café. £20 per person, including refreshments and lunch.
Booking essential through the Estate Office on 01670 773600.
