READING PLACES: Calderstones Mansion Park

DSC_1081 (2)

Calderstones Mansion Park is a very special place, particularly for book-lovers and literary enthusiasts. Not only does it have woodland walks, picturesque ponds and a comerant I tried to befriend (he wasn’t having any of it) but it is also the home of The The Reader , a charity that aims to help those who need it most through shared reading groups. There are plenty of quite corners in the grounds to hide away with the next big read but there is also an on-site cafe to refresh the avid reader and The Reader also hold shared reading groups at the mansion and in the Storybarn for children.
