Red Rose Group - The Antrobus Arms to Norton Priory Gardens Run
RED ROSE NORTON PRIORY RUN Sunday 13th August 2017
Join us Sunday 13th August for a short run to the gardens at Norton Priory.
Norton Priory is the most excavated monastic site in Europe. Its museum opened in August 2016 following a major HLF funded redevelopment project and displays thousands of objects from Tudor shoes to the incredible medieval statue of St Christopher. Visitors can explore the 12th century undercroft building and priory ruins, or venture further into the surrounding woodland to discover secret summer houses and stream glades. The beautiful 2.5 acre Georgian walled garden is a hidden gem with fruit trees, herb garden and rose walk. Home to the National Collection of Quince, it is surrounded by a pear orchard, wildflower meadow and woodland. There is always something new to enjoy with trails and hands-on activities.
There is a reduced group entrance charge of £5 per person. Car parking will be reserved and tea available in the café. The cakes are very good!
Cars will be departing from the Antrobus Arms Northwich (CW9 6JD) at 1.30pm after the monthly group meeting.
