On Thursday, 4th September thirty four of our members set off to visit Ballywalter Park in Strangford Lough. Lord and Lady Dunleath proved to be wonderful guides round the Mansion House which has been in their family for 170 years. We were all very impressed how the home had been carefully restored to its former splendour with a few modern twists. This was followed by refreshments in the wonderful conservatory which was reopened in 2009. Some of us then enjoyed a stroll around the gardens accompanied by Lady Dunleath who shared her gardening knowledge with us.
It was a splendid visit and the sun shone all day!
