A morning at Cliveden – 5th June 2012

We took advantage of the extra Bank Holiday, as well as a break in the rain, for a morning up at Cliveden.

We made our way down to the main lawn to see the ’60’ which had apparently been marked out on the grass, in honour of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

We made our way down onto the back lawn and walked up to the statue at the end of the back lawn.

Given the chilly day, we decided to adjourn to the restaurant for a hot drink.

Afterwards, the girls were keen to revisit the maze.  Accordingly, we split into two groups and eventually managed to reconvene in the centre.

Finally, we had a short stroll around the Water Garden, before the inevitable visit to the shop.  With so much rain at the moment, it was good to get out in the dry for a while.
