The wife and I took a day trip up to Sherborne Castle in Dorset a few weeks ago.
The castle and grounds are open to the public (for a nominal fee of course). Photography is not allowed within the castle but you are free to wonder around the grounds with the camera and tripod.
Sherborne Castle was teh home of Sir Walter Raleigh and the garden was designed by the famous garden designer Capability Brown and are well worth a walk around. There is also a tea room to take refreshments.
This is a view across the lake towards the castle. Our trip was just at the beginning of autumn so I can well imagine the trees surrounding the lake are quite stunning in full autumn colours.
Thanks to those that viewed, commented and clicked on the last upload. Much appreciated.
