Sunday 14th June 09

My daughter, Sarah, and I went to visit Cranbury Park today as it was open for the National Gardens Open Days. It is just down the road from us but I have never seen it as the grounds are only open one day a year. It hasn't got much planting, but is the most wonderful parkland imaginable. Such beautiful trees. This sun dial was designed and placed here by Sir Isaac Newton in 1720, when he lived here with his niece for the seven years before his death.


  1. Sounds like a lovely place to visit Joan.

  2. It's nice to be able to visit these places thanks to the scheme. Great photo.
