The travels, musings and thoughts of a man and his camera.

SNAPSHOT. Rivington Terraced Gardens Reverie.

The entrance arch of the Seven Arch Bridge. Think Shangri – La.

Saturday had been busy so Sunday had to be quiet. One of my favourite locations for loosing myself or forest bathing as I understand its now called, are the Terraced Gardens at Rivington. Once the site of Lord Leverhulme’s weekend retreat.

The Seven Arch Bridge from one of the higher up shelters.

There’s something magically glorious in losing myself in the woodlands up there, making my way through the paths and the remains of the garden features.

Woodland path where do you lead?
The pool in the Japanese Garden.

Slowly the gardens are being restored and consolidated, getting around is no longer quite assault course it once was.

A splash of colour waiting for any passing bees.

Even though the gardens were quite busy, it’s an easy thing to find a quiet spot and have a think.

Put things in order.

Catch your breath.

Kick back and relax.

Down at the Top Barn an al fresco Sunday meet up is in progress.
The world is put to rights until next Sunday.
