A delightful saunter around the National Trust's Stowe Landscape Gardens, 'cradle of the British Landscape Movement', created by Viscount Cobham and developed by William Kent and 'Capability' Brown. Set amid glorious parkland with its lakes and vistas are the famous 'monumental follies' – temples, arches, pavilions and statuary; and at its heart, the great house, now Stowe School.

New visitor centre and car park makes the walk order hard to follow. However Stowe is a lovely place even in the mist, with easy footpaths and plenty to look for. Lovely afternoon out!
