Travel | Shugborough Hall

I was recently talked into joining the National Trust so expect lots of pictures of old houses and castles

For those of you that may not come from the UK or just haven’t heard about the National Trust before, it’s an organisation that owns/runs a collection of buildings and sites of national significance all over the country, which for a small monthly you are able gain entry to any of them as many times as you wish, helping to preserve them for generations to come.

One of the first locations I had the pleasure of visiting was Shugborough Hall near Stafford, a large neo-classical stately home surrounded by 900 aches of sweeping parkland, gardens and woodland, along with a restored Georgian farm.

The house may be the jewel in Shugboroughs crown, but dotted around the estate is plenty of things to see including the walled gardens and the farmhouse, not forgetting the follies that provide beautiful additions to the rural landscape.

There is so much there in fact that sadly we didn’t get time to explore inside the house or make our way out towards the quarry, but what we did see was well worth it and I just hope I did the house and grounds justice with my photographs from the visit.
