Yesterday was frosty and foggy. Today is wet and dismal. So I was especially pleased to stumble across these photos I took on one of last week's dog walks round the Wood, back when Autumn was sunny and bright.
We've called in at Belton House many times in the past on our way to Norfolk, but this time wandering beyond the house and the formal gardens we discovered somewhere new - the Lakeside walk, ideal for a short 'leg-stretch' especially now as the leaves are turning golden and drifting underfoot.
The quaint boathouse has been restored recently and provides a focal point as you wander round the lake.
It was a lovely quiet walk, well away from the busier areas near to the House.
