From the horse's mouth

Our first visit to a National Trust property since a couple of days before lockdown in April. We had to book an arrival time and were checked in using our contact details. At the beginning of the trip the foot traffic was strictly one-way, but as soon as we were out of the stable block and past the Attingham Hall (which remains closed to visitors), it was possible to wander anywhere throughout the grounds, through the deer park and the woodlands, keeping to the 2 - 5 metre wide footpaths.

Arriving promptly at 9 a.m. the stable yard was almost deserted, and the 'horse' reminded us all of the 2 metre social distancing rules, and it was easy to maintain social distancing on the 4 mile walk. By the time we came to leave, after a cup of coffee, the visitor numbers had dramatically increased, so we were lucky to have had such a peaceful and enjoyable morning.

Glad you had a good day out Amelia............it sounds lovely there. It looks like you had some super weather too. A lovely image as well..........I love those cloud formations.

I've just renewed my NT membership after a couple of years lapse - we haven't ventured out to any of them just yet.
