Perfect Day for Capability Brown Walk in Brocket Park

40-Brocket Capability Walk WebMembers had the perfect day for their Capability Brown Walk in41-Brocket Capability Walk Web Brocket Park.

This year is 300 Years since the birth of Capability Brown and the Herts Gardens Trust has produced leaflets detailing 10 different walks www.hertsgardenstrust.org.uk/hgt-events-and-outings.html The Club is planning to do another of these walks in November to take in the beauty of Autumn. Amanda, who lives close-by to Brocket Hall, kindl43-Brocket Capability Walk Weby hosted the group for a pot luck picnic lunch before the walk and tea afterwards where we were also rewarded with some of Joan Williams’ delicious home-made scones! Unfortunately Diana, who was the 42-Brocket Capability Walk Webinspiration for the event, had a sprained ankle, so could only join us at the start and end of the walk (she was there for the scones obviously!). The first pic, taken by Jane’s Mum Joan,  is of (l to r) Maria, Diana, Jane, Joan and Linda. Linda’s husband David joined us for lunch but he too is nursing an injury at the 44-Brocket Capability Walk Webmoment – as is our host Amanda and several other Members who intended to join us and who sadly missed out on a lovely day as they can see from the pics! The next group pic is after Diana had retired from the walk and then there is a pic back in Amanda’s garden for tea.
