May 6th

Last Sunday, while making a rare excursion south of the Trent, Hubcap and I came across this marvellous place: Spetchley Park Gardens near Worcester.

The gardens originally formed the grounds of a Tudor moated manor house belonging to Rowland Berkeley, a descendant of the Lords of Berkeley. This was burned down on the eve of the Battle of Worcester in 1651 by Scottish Prebyterian Royalists in order to prevent Oliver Cromwell from using at as his headquarters, and the and the present Georgian mansion (which is still a private family home) constructed on the site in 1811.
