Cliveden



Visited a couple of weeks ago with my wife and I thought I'd share some of the photos with you over the next couple of weeks you can read more about Cliveden in the link




The long drive leading to the house



The house is leased by a hotel company from the National Trust
The Fountain of Love is a centrepiece for the long drive

Behind it is this long garden which is the first place we visited





Along which you could see topiary this one I called the Micky Mouse Bird
This statue looked a little modern




The face on this one a little worn



Thought it looked rather comical.

Right a spiral piece of Topiary















From the long garden you come out into the grounds of Cliveden and can see this building



Waling out further you come across sculpture. A little further along you see the remains of the Great Oak. The The branches of which overhung and framed the River Thames you see in the photo below

My wife & I enjoyed our day at Cliveden but there were a lot of people there as it was school holidays so we will return when it is a little quieter and  see the parts we missed on our walk around.
