LAND ECONOMY GOES TO MADINGLEY

On a surprisingly sunny (but windy) Saturday morning in March (2022), we all enjoyed a really interesting guided tour of the Madingley Hall gardens lead by Head Gardener Richard Gant.  Four of us walked cross-country from the Park & Ride to the Hall – a two-mile approx. meander via the University’s 800 Wood which offers a view of Ely Cathedral (and yes in the spring sunshine we were able to see it!).  Richard gave an insightful commentary on the history of the Hall and its estate and why particular trees, and other planting are where they are across the 8-acre site.  We then enjoyed coffee/cake (they do proper coffee and a delicious homemade three-tiered Victoria Sponge) and a catch-up at the café before heading home.  What was so nice about it was not just the interesting tour but to spend some quality time together safely and actually in-person with people I would not usually see, unless we all happen to turn-up at LE Does Coffee some time! If you would like to visit Madingley Hall here’s the details
