A Scottish Highland cow. This is a short, shaggy, and hardy breed known for their sweet temperment. (Usually raised to slaughter, but they can make pets and will happily follow their people around.) Photo by Royston Vasey
Wimpole Estate in Cambridgeshire, England. Wimpole’s magnificent parkland is the work of many of the greatest names in landscape gardening including Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown. Although formal features remain, much of the landscape today is characterised by the informal parkland. North Park provides an idyllic setting for the Hall and focuses on the extraordinary, picturesque, sham ruined castle.
ROYSTON VASEY MEMORIES Miss Timkins, secretary of The Royston Vasey Wine Circle, was a bit of a goer in her younger days. She was the first woman in West Yorkshire to own a motor cycle and did not confine herself to sitting primly in the saddle but was prone to startle other road users by standing on the saddle and steering by swaying to one side or the the other.
