Winter is coming... autumn photographs

Hello folks! I think I mentioned online that last week I was off for a few days visiting family, which took me up to Leicestershire and Derbyshire.  It was lovely to get out of the big smoke for a little while and enjoy some idyllic countryside, which I thought that I would share with you all.

It was a good opportunity for some quality mother-and-daughter time, so me and my mum took ourselves off for a day trip to Kedlestone Hall in Derbyshire, where we enjoyed the sumptuous interior  as well as the extensive grounds (and of course, stopped off for a spot of lunch!)

On another day we headed off to Wistow Rural Centre for a spot of shopping and some lunch (though the cafe there was full to capacity - we ended up hitting the pub instead).  I picked up a couple of Christmas presents and also enjoyed having a nose around the Wistow Farm Shop.

After that we headed off for a walk down by the canal and across some fields, a perfect way to spend a sunny autumn afternoon.


I have a feeling that I'll come back to look at these photos a few times as winter continues to take hold, goodbye for now to the sunshine and fine weather!  I'm looking forward to spring already...


  1. Wow looks like the best place to go for a weekend escape!

  2. It's gorgeous up there, some wonderful countryside. And I do so like being out of doors :D
