Photographer's Note

After my recent mis-hap with the hard drive this next set of photos were fortunately still on the memory card.
We went to Thorp Perrow Arboretum near Bedale in North Yorkshire, just over an hour's drive away. We have been having an unusually mild autumn and this day the temperature was in the low 20s C!
The Arboretum covers 85 acres of woodland walks. It boasts the finest collection of trees and shrubs in the country. It was created by Colonel Sir Leonard Ropner Bt.(1885-1977) and is now owned and managed hy his son Sir John Ropner Bt. It also has a falconry, with regular displays.
I thought I would show you the house and gardens first. They are not open to the public, but you will get an idea of the setting, when you see subsequent shots of the Arboretum itself. This was taken from across the artificial lake, and is a stitch of two shots.
