Sprotbrough And Walker's Show Gardens

A pleasant afternoon spent  with Marshall my support worker, fitting in two short walks around a dental appointment.

We started by going to Sprotbrough and doing one of our regular walks there.









After Marshall had had his dental check-up we drove down the road to Walker's Show Gardens at Blaxton. The gardens here are a delight, an undiscovered secret known by only a relatively few people in the town...I only found out about them a couple of years ago myself. They are immaculately cared for in order show off the plants and garden features at their very best. There's plenty to see; an arboretum, parkland, several ponds, ornamental fish, a canal, a boathouse, decorative archways, pagodas, pergolas, attractive hump-backed bridges over streams, a summer house...and even a stone circle.
