Weekly Prompts : Magical Place

Sometimes it’s just a matter of standing right under a tree and looking up.

Me with an impressive Beech tree.

Saurday 10th November 2018 : Felbrigg (Felbrigg Hall), North Norfolk

When the leaves start falling from the trees it’s the best time of the year to visit my favourite National Trust Hall and the grounds that surround it.

Yesterday we felt that we had arrived just in the nick of time – the leaves have been falling for a few weeks now.   In sunshine the autumn colour was glorious.  This is Felbrigg Hall at its best – in my opinion anyway.

An avenue of trees

It’s a magical place.

Yesterday in its dreamy golden light we strolled around, had a coffee at the cafe and went through the wood.

As a national trust establishment children are positively encouraged to get close to nature, have fun and build dens.

Build a den?

As for us – we always find that we can loose ourselves by going ‘off trail’ as we take turns with the camera.   And then there’s always a tree to hug – there are plenty to choose from!

I couldn’t hug this tree due to its size but I could sit on it.  This one is actually quite close to the Hall and car park but people passing didn’t seem to give it a second glance.  How old this tree must be, 200 years old maybe? or older….

What a tree

A Sweet Chestnut

I’ve written about Felbrigg before, in a previous post, so it’s definitely no secret as to how much I love this place.  If you’d like to see a photo of the hall please do click on the link to that old post as I didn’t do that this time.

By the way, this is what I was looking at in the first photo.

Take a look at the trees.
