Adjacent to Lyveden New Bield, this Elizabethan Water Garden has been restored by the National Trust in recent years. There is a series of canals forming a square, with a meadow in the centre. At each of the four corners is a spiral mound which enabled ladies to gracefully walk to the top to enjoy the view.

Northamptonshire is known as the county of spires and squires. This Grade II* listed building near Brigstock dates from the early-mid 1600s, and was probably originally a hunting lodge in the Rockingham Forest. The house has been substantially altered over the years. The Brigstock Horse Trials are held in the grounds, which cover more than 300 acres.

These days the canal provides an idyllic way of life, but in Napoleonic times it was of strategic importance. The canal at Weedon led directly to a major ordnance depot with an associated barracks. Had Napolean invaded this country it was planned that King George III would seek sanctuary here, travelling from London via the canal.

Photographed feeding on the heather in my garden in Northamptonshire in the last days of winter, the Comma butterfly is one of five species that can be seen in this country in March. Until the 1940s they could only be seen in the Welsh borders, but now they are much more common.

The 13th century church, ancient grammar school and Bede House at Higham Ferrers in Northamptonshire have been described as the finest group of ecclesiastical buildings outside Cambridge. The grammar school is just in front of St Mary's Church, while the Bede House is out of shot to the right. Both were founded by Archbishop Henry Chichele in the early 15th century. The church contains a double nave and some superb medieval brasses. The stone cross on the right dates from medieval times.
