Forbidden Corner (Photo Heavy!)

As I mentioned in my last post, yesterday I met up with my school friends Kiki and Fran, and my sister Beth came too (these are all her photos, I’m too lazy to take them!) and we went to this place called the Forbidden Corner. I found it hard to describe it in the last post, so we had a little discussion about it, and none of us could think how to describe it either!! It used to just be a garden on an estate, but they expanded it and opened it to the public, but it isn’t a normal garden! It’s filled with all sorts of strange things, gargoyles, secret underground tunnels, castle walls, a hedge maze, all sorts! I think the only way to describe it is by showing you the pictures, there were so many more but I chose a few =)

Well, we had a picnic first, but we got attacked…by ducks!! The above photo isn’t a very good representation of just how attacked we were!! There were at least 20, and they weren’t scared of us! And one actually started pecking Fran’s feet under the table! Beth had to chase them off, but it was hilarious =D


So these are the gates just coming out from the picnic area, even that and the toilets are themed, what the theme is I’m not entirely sure, but they are! When you go into the actual ‘garden’ you’re given a leaflet with little riddles written as poems and pictures to accompany them of the things you’re supposed to find, but no map. It’s basically like a really big maze. Sometimes you’ll find yourself in a rotating room with 7 doors, or you’ll turn a corner and find something squirting water at you, or you have to get through a waterfall, or over stepping stones! Well, I’ll give you a massive dump of photos to show you =D

I’m not sure if that accurately covers the atmosphere of it, but it’s so difficult to explain! Well, anyway, it’s a really lovely day out, and we had a great time! I drove (it’s about 100 miles there and back) and I managed to not crash or kill so that was a pretty good thing! We stopped for ice cream on the way back at this farm we always stop at if we’re over in the Dales, it’s so good! And here’s some more pictures from the day, including my outfit too =)

    Bahaha, I love the photo of you with the gladiator statue. I officially now need to get to the UK and visit this place, holy crow, that looks fantastic. (And, I have been super busy, but my post for you is all written up! I just need to put in the photos and then I can e-mail it to ya, I’ll try for tonight, but probably Sunday, because I am still ridiculously busy, bah!)
