National Trust The Firs & Brockhampton Wednesday 25 September 2019

A first for us with a two centre visit going to The Firs in Worcestershire for our first visit of the day. The birthplace of Sir Edward Elgar is most definitely home to ‘Land of Hope and Glory’. Set in sight of his beloved Malvern Hills, this small family home in the village of Lower Broadheath is the perfect environment for nurturing a creative genius. Perhaps by wandering around the garden over the cottage threshold a spark of inspiration may alight in our welcomed guests. Time for coffee and lunch before we depart for our second visit of the day. At the heart of this farmed estate lies Lower Brockhampton Manor House, a romantic timber-framed house dating back to the late 14th century. The house is surrounded by a moat and is entered via a charming timber-framed gatehouse, built 1530-40. There are miles of walks through the orchards, park and woodlands, featuring ancient trees, the picturesque Lawn Pool. This is home to a rich variety of wildlife, along with historic farming breeds such as Hereford cattle and Ryeland sheep. Plenty of time to wander and perhaps have a cup of tea before we depart late afternoon for home.
