Abundance of autumn colour at Gunby
As the days shorten and it gets cooler, there's lots of autumn colour to enjoy in the Gunby gardens and grounds. From light brown to deep red enjoy the rich colour palette of the season.
With so many trees in the grounds and gardens, there are autumn colours galore to be found this time of year.
As you approach the entrance, you'll be greeted by the lime trees that flank the drive. They turn a glorious golden before they drop their many leaves.
In the gardens the shrubs and plants may be losing their flowers, but some of the foliage is still showing off its bright colours.
Don't miss a visit to the vegetable garden to see if the pumpkins have been harvested. The Gunby cats can often be found nearby.
In October the golden colours of enormous beech tree, which is more than 200 years old, offer a lovely autumnal scene when viewed from the side door of the house.
If you go for a walk around the grounds, do step inside St Peter's Church on the edge of the garden. It looks particularly mysterious on a misty autumn morning.
Why not venture out a bit further and go to the ice house pond? This time of year the autumn leaves reflect beautifully on the water surface. On a still day you can take a photo that's nearly a mirror image.
Just beyond the ice house pond you can follow the woodland belt and enjoy crunching the leaves on the path.
