Snowdrops at Hopton Hall

By pentaxpatty
Hello from a lovely sunny day in Yorkshire

Thank you all for the lovely comments , votes , a special thank you to Jos, and Isabel for their lovely user awards, I am so pleased that you enjoyed the sheep photographs.

I have had a lovely day out to Hopton Hall, to see the lovely snowdrops.

Hopton Hall, dating back to 1414, lies on the edge of the White Peak National Park. In the 1400s Hopton Hall boasted an estate of 3,700 acres, some of which now stands under the Carsington Reservoir.

Spencer our Manager, has virtually restored the formal gardens and created many new and interesting features including the 1 acre walled garden in which we have planted over 2000 roses in 40 individual beds surrounded by 5000 neatly trimmed box plants.
After much dedicated hard work, we have added a Laburnum Tunnel and a number of walks, the Beech, Badger and Spring walks: a small Arboretum and Pinetum have been created as well as the generation of two small ponds and a wildlife lake.
Follow the 2 km of meandering paths along the croquet lawn & rosewalk, around 2 ornamental ponds leading to the wildlife lake, Arboretum, Laburnum tunnel, Birch Avenue and more, creating a wonderful Summer Spectacular with visual surprises at each corner.

This property offers free access to HHA Friends and Members during normal opening hours - please check opening times.

Have a lovely evening

Love and light Patty xxSmileSmile
