Canons Ashby June 2017


We have visited this old place before however can find no log of it anywhere. This visit was done on a scorcher of a day so we took a picnic and drove along the back roads in Northamptonshire . You can visit the house on a timed ticket but are free to visit and walk along the gardens at your pleasure, there is also the Gift shop to help take cash from your pocket.
