I always forget I'm lucky enough to have Ashridge practically right on my doorstep and it's such a gorgeous place. I have fond memories of visiting in the summer as a child, running through the wood, or, as I got older, parking up and enjoying a picnic with my parents.
As it goes, it p*ssed down with rain as soon as my nan and I arrived, so we ducked beneath some shelter and watched the rain with a couple of hot chocolates.
Once it dried off, it seemed to brighten up really quickly so we headed out for a brief walk (whilst it had stopped raining) and I took some photos.
I thought it would be nice to share them all here, so, enjoy!
I just absolutely adore the autumn colours and hope I have time to get out there again before they all disappear for winter!
