Filton Garden Club outing to Sherborne Castle
Members of Filton Garden Club enjoyed a greenfingered outing to Sherborne Castle on July 11.
Dot Bryant said: “Fortunately it was one of the cooler days during this heatwave and we were able to enjoy a gentle stroll around the lake enjoying the beautiful views and the tranquility, without suffering from heat exhaustion - the perfect weather in fact. The historic house, built by Sir Walter Raleigh in 1594, was full of wonderful collections of art, furniture and porcelain and was worthy of a whole day's exploration!”
