The Orangery

Kirkdale and Chafer Woods Walk

Kirkdale and Chafer Woods Walk

Went for a quick walk from the cottages up through Chafer Wood and then across and down through Kirkdale.  Passing the local church and stopping to take photographs of Ebberston Hall - apparently the UK's smallest stately home. But before we made it back to Cliff...
