Barbie, wonderful photos of the canal etc. at Walton Hall Park.  Did you have a drink at the Walton Hall Arms or an ice cream in the park?

Very Happy I knew you were the one that would know where I was Alice! What a delightful park it is. I thoroughly enjoyed my trip.
I didn't have either of those things Alice, I had tea and a scone with jam in the park's cafe. They gave me one of those miniature jars of jam all to myself. Very Happy

More.....

Walton Hall







Animal's graves, one of which is a horse



I sat down on this bench for a short while, enjoying the suun.

New military vehicle?






I can't wait to see it when it's renovated.


The staff of the hall of yesteryear





This photo is a bit of a paradox.....such a peaceful place invaded by the army....with the bridesmaids from teh wedding in the background.

An 8 hr day , including 6 buses , Wow ! Barbie you most certainly made the most of the Glorious weather we had yesterday.
You and Alice are both so very fortunate to have, at times , visted Walton Hall Park Warington, I've never visited ,but must do sometime, it looks like a beautiful place to spend time in.
Those pics show it off in such a lovely way. Thanks for uploding and sharing memories of your visit, I bet you were well knackered by the time you returned..knackered , but extremely pleased with your day.

Well Beeb, was awake at 5 for work.....haha...can't switch off. So yeah it was a long day, but worth it.
Here are a few more pics off my phone cam.....didn't want to use my camera cos so many kiddies about. So pretended I was texting. This is where the cafe is, nice area for scoffing your noms! I rather suspect it was once the court yard and stables.



Oh sorry....none left... Laughing

I must say to anybody who hasn't been, GO! Warrington and surrounding areas are brill. Although I have no attachment as it not Liverpool, I can still enjoy their very own heritage, just as I can St Helens. Both town have wonderful old buildings and pubs with very ornate exteriors, I saw one in Warrington from the bus and it was pretty awesome. I hope to get off the bus next time and go take a few shots of it.
Warrington also has it's own half timber pub too in the town centre. I also will go check out the town hall next time i am there.

Barbie we were there a few weeks ago and there was a film crew but didn't ask what they were filming.  We never stay long as we are usually on the way to somewhere else so I have never been up to see the church.

The church is about 5 mins or less walk away from the entrance of the park.   Very Happy

Yes Barbie, I have seen the church in the distance.  Down that main road A56  about a mile further on is the turn off for Lewis Carrolls grave.  It's not far from the main road.  The turning leads to the Ring O Bells pub and the church is just over the road.
