Last weekend I made a couple of posts about Knutsford.
Peover Hall was the headquarters of the U.S. Third Army led by General Patton in the weeks leading up to D Day.
I had a lovely walk around the grounds.
There is a right of way through to the church and it's a long walk along the drive...
Peover Hall is close to the radio telescope at Jodrell Bank.
A view of the hall on my approach.
The stable yard was very impressive.... quite a bit of comfort for the horses.
This little gate was locked... so I didn't get to see the secret garden.
nn At last an open gate and guess what... I wandered through it for a nosey.
Built in 1585 by Sir Ralph Mainwaring, Peover Hall is a fine example of an Elizabethan manorhouse with carved staircase, panelled walls and a long gallery.
Memorials for the family pets were along side the entrance to the churchyard.
As I left the estate I walked through these wonderful gates...
...as I looked back I saw a sign saying Private No Entry.
OK I was leaving...but by the wrong exit.
