More Pictures of Snow at Newstead

The icicles hanging from the rafters of the Tea House at Newstead show how cold it was there last March.  The little stone bridge over the stream was too slippery to walk over so remained pristine with its snow cover.

Japanese Lanterns

Here are two more lanterns from the Newstead Abbey Gardens.  The one on the small island is interesting but I think the large one amongst the trees is beautiful.

Japanese Garden at Newstead

The snow seemed to enhance the Japanese look of the Newstead Garden.  Not having seen a Japanese garden in winter I can only compare these photographs with photos I have seen in books.  I am glad we do not have snow in my town of Hastings in New Zealand.

The Japanese Garden

The Japanese gardens at Newstead Abbey were quite magical in the snow.  The little tea house with its lovely round window had been sensitively placed and maintained. I am not sure how often it may have been used or whether it was just for decoration.

Snow at Newstead Gardens

The snow between the stones of this path at Newstead made a beautiful pattern.  The waterfall was moving fast enough not to have frozen although it may look as if it had in this photograph.

Newstead Abbey

In March I was taken to visit the Newstead Abbey Gardens.  These pictures show the Abbey and the Chapel but not a lot of the snow that was quite thick at the time.  More pictures of the lovely gardens to come.

More from Inside Southwell Minster

This is another view inside Southwell Minster and another stained glass window.  I love the pattern of the framing within the window.
