The Lodge Grounds

By mac
On another walk today, photographing some plants in our public park.

The Lodge Grounds are in the centre of North Berwick and were created in the 17th century by the Dalyrymple family. In 1939, they became a public park when North Berwick Town Council bought both the grounds and the Lodge.
The lower park is a formal garden with an aviary. The upper early Victorian park has wide open spaces, mature trees, lavender garden, wild gardens, great views of North Berwick Law and the Bass Rock, and a children's play area.
The chestnut tree is in front of The Lodge and is a magnificent tree of large dimensions. V7 is its blossom.
The Lodge at the entrance to grounds consists of blocks of white-washed buildings enclosing a courtyard on two sides with walls on the others. The buildings, dating from the 17th century (or perhaps earlier), rise to three storeys, and have been much altered down the centuries. Image V8. Count the chimneys!
A few flowers, which I have no idea what they are so any names would come in handy for titling them.
Thanks for viewing!
