On Sunday we took advantage of the good weather and made our way over to Ashbury. The National Trust property was closed to visitors but that didn't stop us from having a lovely walk in the countryside close by.
We decided to take the pushchair with us around the series. Fortunately it coped with the terrain as the ground was flat and not too overgrown but in future we will use our carriers. The layout of the area came about as a railway used to run through it. Sadly the railway is long gone and you will not see a single track on the walk but the layout helped in containing our eldest and enabled her to practice walking.
We also encountered a single carriage that looked like it had been there a very long time for foliage had laid claim to it. In fact I first thought it was another Andersen shelter until hubby informed me that he’d read what it was. This carriage actually helps in locating one of the geocaches but sadly we did the series backwards and did not feel like walking all the way back to where we’d come from to locate it.
Further along the series or should I say near the beginning is the house itself. A geocache has been placed nearby so hubby left us in a field while he hopped over a log to go and get it. On the way to the geocache he was nearly taken out by a couple of deer that leapt through the grounds. Hubby was fortunately unscathed just a bit surprised and was thankful it wasn't rutting season.
