Lovely colours Ron. I kept meaning to go to have a look in the Walled Gardens during autumn but never got chance. Thanks for sending this in.


Comment by Janet (FL ) on 18th December 2014 at 03:08
Thanks Ron, I loved the 'Walled Garden, I always wanted a walled garden of my own :-)


Comment by Mick on 18th December 2014 at 08:03
One of the walled gardens is now growing fruit and veg, last year I even saw some grapes growing.

That's a very pretty picture Ron..lovely colours.


Comment by Ron D on 18th December 2014 at 10:15
Mick The top garden is only open on a Thursday,and when available produce is on sale to the public. Volunteers do the work of making the sort of garden that was there originally.


Comment by Giovanni on 18th December 2014 at 10:36
As Alan says Where's the wall?
All I can see is wrought iron fencing no brickwork at all!


Comment by Ron D on 18th December 2014 at 13:01
Allan ,Giovanni,put your clogs on and go for a walk around there.


Comment by aitch on 18th December 2014 at 13:32

Nice photo. Been in the Plantations this morning. Lovely even in the rain but the litter....oh dear!


Comment by irene roberts on 18th December 2014 at 15:40
One of my favourite places; it's so special there.


Comment by David - Wigan ex pat. on 18th December 2014 at 16:45
I miss the splendour of the plantation and Haigh Hall. I last visited about 25 years ago , just before I moved away.


Comment by david on 18th December 2014 at 17:02
A walled garden means an enclosed garden.


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 18th December 2014 at 19:39
Lovely picture.....lovely colours.


Comment by Dostaf on 18th December 2014 at 21:01
Some of the uprights on that wall are made from 15" gauge railway lines.


Comment by John Brown on 21st December 2014 at 12:18
A lovely picture Ron.


Comment by Giovanni on 21st December 2014 at 13:17
No clogs for me Ron D.
A pair of TIMBERLAND BOOTS & A JACK WOLFSKIN WAXED COAT for my winter walks!


Comment by Louey on 17th February 2016 at 00:51
Remember walking down here but it was raining hard so we sheltered under the trees, then we walked on when it stopped. We had a good laugh. Can't remember when it was.
