Erddig in Autumn

Early memories of Erddig Hall involve making an appearance in the local newspaper due to having attended their Apple Festival with school. (This year’s Apple Festival is coming up on the 1st October!)

I’ve not visited the house or gardens since school, but I have taken Jenson to wander around the grounds of the estate. This being said, walking around the gardens was almost something new and different to see.

Summer is amazing, but the colours the transitional period bring between Summer and Autumn can turn landscapes into a sea of golden colour.

Walking through the back of the Stables brought us out to the side of the house which looked out onto the rolling Welsh hillsides. A building with such uniform features having an incredible presence in the scenery around it.

Through a small wooden gate we were taken into a vast expanse of fruit trees & countless varieties of plants which were positioned precisely in flower beds throughout Erddig’s walled gardens.

Bees were bumbling about. Friendly ducks greeting everyone in site…or searching for food perhaps? Either way, it was a perfect afternoon. Feeling so far from the modern world, yet not really missing it either.
