Autumn in the Garden at Dunham Massey
Dunham Massey's unique garden is a treat for all the senses at this time of year. Enjoy an autumnal walk through the garden and experience the sights, sounds, smells, textures and even tastes of the garden as the colours change to vibrant reds, oranges and yellows in autumn.
Notice the smell of candyfloss as you wander the canal border with the Katsura tree's decaying leaves emitting a lovely burnt sugar smell. Keep an eye our for the Japanese Maples as they change colour to vibrant reds and oranges from September onwards. On cold and frosty days, visit the garden early to see the autumnal colours reflecting on the water in the moat - you might even hear the distant sound of the deer rutting!
Once we've walked around the substantial park and gardens we will head to the Swan with Two Nicks for a well-deserved Sunday lunch.
What our members say:

"I decided it was time to start getting active again. The easy pace and distances coupled with the promise of sunday lunch had me sign up for Social Circle straight away. As a bonus, I got a 10 day pass to my local gym too." Dave
