Miserden Gardens

– a member of Historic Houses Association

Even in November this is an interesting garden with topiary, gates, a fountain and a variety of trees

 

 

 

A few roses are still flowering

The house is not open

Next we went to

Miserden Church

– a visit with Stroud U3A Church History and Architecture Group.

A tea caddy tomb

The round arch is Anglo-Saxon, with a lower later arch

 

Mediaeval stained glass

Effigy of William Kingston, died 1614

 

Effigies of Sir William Sandys and his wife (died 1640 and 1644)

We marvelled at the details

Their children are on either side, with the infants who died on the back

Miserden Lake

Last night the sky was red in the east, west and  north, so we expected good weather today

We went to Miserden and did the Woodland Walk                            Map of walk  2.6 miles

We parked by Miserden Nursey and walked into the village,

then out into the fields. There were lots of birds flying about. We saw several pheasants too, but they were too shy to have their photos taken.

Lovely autumn colours

This lovely lake has been formed by a dam in the young River Frome (which later flows through Stroud)

Reflection in the stream

The church at Winstone on the hill

The Lodge is dated 1864

 

A lovely afternoon
