This week we decided to return to Cheshire, to the National Trust cotton mill Quarry Bank, built in 1784. We’ve been there many times before, but its always interesting to return every so often to see what’s changed, particularly in the gardens. Yet again the sky was grey, with not a drop of golden sun to be seen, but it was at least dry. The trees did, however, provide us with plenty of autumn colours. We Brits are easily pleased!
