Route Description

From the car park near reception and The Argory courtyard, follow the path towards the stone pavilion building with the narrow windows. Join the path at the pavilion with the river on your right and the ha-ha wall on your left. Stay on this path and within 5 minutes you will be under the canopy of lime trees. In February you will also be surrounded by a carpet of snowdrops. At the end of the lime trees you can go past the Meadow cottage on the right and see the wildflower meadow throughout the season.

At this point you can either walk up the avenue and see The Argory in all its glory or else join Lady Bond's Walk, which is to the right.
