Make your Easter decorations and take them here. Hopefully another wonderful display of crafts to join the spring flowers.

The Fairies have long since flown South but when they return this year it will be as magical as ever. The best place to park is The Riverside Car Park and take the short walk to The Pightle, The journey there adds to the magic!

You walk through a field, sometimes with grazing sheep, around a lake, through orchards and through Buckden Towers itself. If you ask the curator nicely you can also gain access to their beautiful manicured walled knot garden beloved by the late Queen Katherine of Aragon.

This is a beautiful right of way crossing the farm land towards Stirloe Park, often dotted with beautiful grazing cattle, horses and sheep. It's steeped in wartime history much of this is preserved by the curators of St. Lawrence's Church in Diddington. To access the hidden gem park in the free car park at the end of Diddington and walk along the track next to the car park. Tough with a buggy.
