Dudmaston Estate in Shropshire, on the way North.

We decided to start our East of Scotland trip 1/2 a day early leaving home late Thursday morning and so an extra part day to reach the Scottish coast.

Spent the afternoon at The Dudmaston Estate looking around the Hall garden and Lakes. Owned by one family for 875 years the house is still lived in by family members. Handed to the National Trust in1978. The house today feels lived in rather than a cold museum with no life. Just off now to find a stopover for tonight before heading North.
