Given that the weather was looking good I took a trip to Elvaston Castle to have a look around. Elvaston Castle is just outside of Derby, in the country, and is a Gothic style Manor house built by James Watt. The castle is surrounded by grade II listed gardens, St Bartholomew's Parish Church and woodland.

|A pathway towards a secret garden, or so I assumed.|
|A nicely carved wooden chair, reminded me of Goldilocks for some reason..|
