Under the spreading chestnut tree

Last week, as you may have gathered, I was in Warwick.  I had seen most of the well-known attractions before, but on a stroll found Abbey Park.  This is much less formal than the typical Victorian or Edwardian Parks, which are usually kept very well-manicured.  Still, it is a pleasant space in the urban area, with a couple of useful routes to and from the town centre.

I headed out of town through East Gate.

Abbey Park is tucked away on the north side of town.  There is little sign of the long-gone abbey.

I was surprised to find these crocuses at this time of year.

And finally, one of the most pictured scenes in provincial England.
