Bishop Burton Lambing Sunday

Lambing Sunday, Bishop Burton College, East Yorkshire

Sunday 10th March was the annual Lambing Sunday at our local agricultural college in Bishop Burton, East Yorkshire. Inspired by Julie and her trip to Lackham College in Wiltshire, we decided it was time we did the same.
It was very busy when we arrived and the cars were bumper-to-bumper but the events team did a good job of getting everyone parked up.

Lambing at Lackham Farm, Chippenham, Wiltshire

On March 11th 2012, the husband and I took the children to Lackham Farm at the college for the first of their two annual lambing weekends.

Sewerby Hall and Gardens, Bridlington, East Yorkshire

Today we visited Sewerby Hall and Gardens just to the north of Bridlington in East Yorkshire. This is a council-owned stately home with a long history over-looking the North Sea. The grounds are huge and incorporate animal paddocks, woodland walks, walled gardens and a pitch and putt golf course. 
There is a land train from Bridlington promenade, and a car park on site (though it can get full in the summer). Today, early in November, it was idyllic – lots of orange foliage, and hardly any visitors.
