Alscot Park
Alscot Park
A view from the nearest public road, on a misty day. Off to the left is the River Stour, which has flooded the parkland here and left debris attached to the gate. We are on the route of Shakespeare's Way, but the house dates from well after his time.
Alscot Park

Alscot is an excellent example of a small Rococo-Gothick house and is home to the Holman-West family. The gardens are open very occasionally to the public. Much more on the history of the estate can be found on the Alscot Park website - LinkExternal link

Shakespeare's Way

Shakespeare's Way is a 146 mile long distance footpath from Shakespeare's birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon to the Globe theatre in London. It follows as nearly as possible a route that Shakespeare may have taken between the two, but using footpaths, quiet lanes and towpaths, rather than his tracks, which are today's main roads.
