Lovely Londesborough

Having experienced a wonderful walk around North Newbold in the eastern Yorkshire Wolds I decided to explore the nearby village of Londesborough.  It is a tiny village with no pub, no shops and a ruined manor house.  To the south of the village is Londesborough Park which  has a landscape park, woodland and gardens. There are parkland avenues, a lake with cascades and a 1730s kitchen garden.

I was very fortunate insofar as the weather was perfect but my day was seriously enhanced by the advice given to me by a gent in the church.  He told me to go into the private gardens and down to the steps where I would have an amazing view whilst I enjoyed my picnic lunch.  He was so right and I also discovered a secret garden hidden away behind the church.

Londesborough is one of those places that is restful to the soul but also uplifting.  It is a straightforward route to follow and I strongly recommend it to 'All My Readers'
