Hubby suggested we stop off at the local garden centre and then Houghton Mill (we had never been to Houghton Mill before)
Well, what can I say, that place is incredible. It’s a 10-15 minute drive from our house and we had been to this beautiful place before. Quite why, I can’t fathom out. Unfortunately the Mill itself doesn’t open up to the public until next week but the river and woodland was stunning. We also found out that there are nearby walks so one weekend we are going to leave the car at nearby St Ives and take the walk to Houghton, have afternoon tea at the tearoom and walk back again.
If the car park had not been full at the Country Park, we would never have gone to Houghton Mill and will still not know what a wonder we have on our doorstep.
