A highlight of our second day in Norfolk last week was a trip to Felbrigg Hall, a National Trust property. The house is amazing, including a huge collection of antiquarian books. We were not expecting much of a garden, although there are hundreds of acres of landscaped grounds. But we were pleasantly surprised to discover a fantastic walled garden. The first section reminded me of Parham in West Sussex, with its straight gravelled pathways overflowing with flowers.
The other half of the garden is divided into a series of allotments, which members of the public maintain. This scheme seems to be working really well, as there was a wealth of produce on display.

|Is this the best hen house in the world?!|
The greenhouses have been restored and were full of tender plants.
