A Visit To Beningbrough Hall, Near York

Another trip with Siobhan, one of my support workers, to Beningbrough Hall, a few miles north west of York, a trip that was originally scheduled for a fortnight ago but had to be postponed due to an administrative error.

The weather was rather disappointing, cloudy, with a bit of rain...and cold again. The weather forecast yesterday was so much more promising though.

The hall is nothing special, just a typical eighteenth century grand country house: the walled gardens are impressive though, the best I've ever seen - well maintained with a large variety of fruit trees and vegetables, all clearly labelled.

The farm shop was poor; no rabbit pies or game pies.
