Studley Royal Water Garden NT

The walk we enjoyed at Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal took us along one side of the River Skell, across a causeway and back along the other side. There was the choice between a high-level and a less steep walk. We chose the high level walk with viewpoints. The pictures in this post were taken in the part of the estate at the Studley Royal end. There was far more to explore, including a deer park, which we couldn’t fit into our visit.

The water gardens are overlooked by follies and woodland paths. After a frosty night several statues had been covered for the winter. The calm sunny day was perfect for reflections on the water.
