The 'before' and 'after' photo's below not only show the difference in the plot from when we started to when we'd finished, but the marked improvement in the weather from a cold, damp morning, to beautiful sunshine:-)
|Before - the plot full of weeds and the weather cold and damp!|
|After! - no weeds and sunshine, hurrah:-)|
|Blue bells in the woods|
........and the ancient oak 'Bell Tree' which is a sculptural sound installation by Serena Korda, inspired by the fascinating story of hidden rebellions at Speke Hall. Afterwards we were given free access to explore Speke Hall, before the journey home via Styal, to drop everyone back at their cars.
