Sculptures at Burghley House

Saturday 12th September we went to the Sculpture park at Burghley House, meeting some Northants IVC members there. First of all we went to the Garden of Surprises, where features such as the moss house, the swivelling Caesar busts, basins of water, jets and the mirrored maze have been designed to be accessible to all regardless of age or interest!

After lunch we went into the Sculpture Garden, which contains  a permanent collection of sculptures with additional temporary pieces, largely hidden among  shrubs on undulating ground. Many of the trees were rarities too.

All in all a good day out
