On the excuse that it was one of those beautiful, crisp, sunny January days that we should make the most of, I persuaded J to have a little trip out to Stowe today. Stowe is just outside Buckingham and the landscape gardens were designed by Lord Cobham in the 18th century; Capability Brown was head gardener here. The landscape has been arranged to look natural though it’s anything but, and then filled with follies, bridges and Neoclassical temples. We plan to come back regularly, as the seasons change.
Enough talk; time for photos.
There is so much to see, and we really just went on a quick recce today – no doubt there will be more posts about this extraordinary place in the future.
