Baddesley Clinton Scarecrows.

Baddesley Clinton

The photos below were taken in the recreated Victorian vegetable gardens at Baddesley Clinton.

To be honest, at first when I saw the “lady” hanging out the washing I thought there was some kind of role-play/re-enactment going on and rushed to take a shot while

“she” was still pegging out the clothes. It was what I might call a “photographer moment.” Of course others might say “poor eyesight” or worse …


Great gardens to visit, lovely sense of humour to the scarecrows, with “informative labels” referring to “Queen Victoria” as Empress of the Great Broad Bean Empire

and other such jocularity (I am wondering if this is just English humour … and what if visitors took it literally.

Surely not possible ??



This final shot (for now) is of a picturesque wooden outbuilding below a pear tree covered in vegetation. Something from children’s story – or a ghost story perhaps?


This was a smashing day out, lovely (Surprisingly moated) property to visit, woodland and countryside walks well wayposted, evocative walled garden, great – if slightly eccentric – room guides (absolutely the best kind to have I believe)

and tasty cheese and tomato sandwiches.
