Scenes in the Meadows and by the river included moments of loneliness, heartache, love, guilt, happiness, and, above all, friendship, all of which will be discussed during the tour.

After the tour, you are invited to put your feet up and relax in the beautiful orchard and sample some of the Tea Garden’s tasty treats Mrs Chapman would approve.
