Little did we all know about this garden when we arrived. and how struck we all were with its beauty as we went through it. This is a must see garden. truly each room a work of art and good taste. 'The Old Vicarage'
owned by Alan Gray and Graham Robson is a ten acre wonder to behold. I have seen many gardens in my travels but this is one of the few that stands out in my mind. It was opened just for us this day, so we all could enjoy its grace and beauty. We then had refreshments, a time to chat with the owners and we were off to Blickling Hall. Now it was raining, but thankfully we had an inside tour so missed most of it. I also did take pictures of the gardens.
