Hidcote Manor Gardens
Hidcote Manor Gardens is probably one of the most famous National Trust Properties, not only nationally but internationally as well.   Its location at the very north end of the Cotswolds in Gloucestershire means that it is only a short drive from where I live.
 
Hidcote is a special place for me.   It is probably the first National Trust I ever visited as a child (and thus making it the NT property I've visited the most number of times), and was the location for my first Digital SLR session with my father's Canon, a session that resulted in my purchase of a Sony A200.   Had I chosen somewhere else, or picked a less sunny a day to visit, it's possible that I may not have been as impressed with the results and stuck with my Minolta for a little while longer.   This would have probably meant that I would not have photographed the 2008 Evesham Vale 10K run to the extent I did, would not have been invited to do the 2009 event, and thus not come to the attention of the Evesham River Festival and "Wartime in the Vale". 
 
This collection is compiled from seven sessions over the period 2007-2015, and taken with four different cameras.    The fifth and sixth sessions have  resulted in some changes to the running order of this collection, which is location-based using the map in the official guide.
