Summer Outing – 6th July, 2016 – Knowsley Hall

Thanks to our outings organiser, Ann Shearman, we enjoyed a most interesting day at Knowsley Hall.  The parkland and gardens are stunning – a real oasis between St. Helens and Liverpool.  It was very special to be the only group visiting and we were guided round the house by the Curator, Dr. Stephen Lloyd.  He told us much about the history of the Stanley family, who have owned the property since 1365 and particularly about the many and varied paintings.

After the tour we enjoyed tea and home-made biscuits.

Summer Outing – 17th June, 2014

On 17th June, 2014 more than 35 members enjoyed a fabulous day’s outing to Hutton in the Forest and the church at Wreay built by Sarah Losh. If you were not with us, you missed a treat. The weather was lovely and the day was an excellent combination of a tour round an interesting house with the most beautiful gardens, looking their best, and then on to visit and hear about the amazingly unique church at Wreay. I can only thoroughly recommend both.
