We piled into Nik's Toyota Hilux pick-up and he drove us to the Ranger's workshop and Bothy, where we were offered a cup of tea while Nik told us a bit about Gawthorpe Hall. We warmed ourselves in front of the log-burner whilst sitting on proper wooden chairs with seat pads - true luxury!! Christine (so now 2 Christine's and 2 Andy's!), the other 'Gawthorpe and Stubbins Estates' Ranger, arrived to join us.
|A great start to the day:-)|
|Starting slashing and raking the weeds|
|End of the day by one of the many 'piles' of weeds we created|
We had a brilliant day - not only a new venue but Nik and Christine made us feel so welcome that we will definitely be back next year!!
|MNTV Christine ready for the trip back to the car park!|
