    The walled gardens are a delight to walk round, huge herbaceous borders, lawns and hot houses . There are also walled kitchen gardens containing fruit trees, herbs and vegetables.

    The gazebo was constructed by Sir William Amcotts Ingilby in 1818. It's a short walk from the Palm House.

    Events take place at Ripley Castle throughout the year. While I was there, a falconry display took place.

    The annual Scarecrow Competition takes place over the August bank holiday. Its theme is based on the famous Ripley Boar Hog. The scarecows with pig shaped heads are placed in and around the village. A competition is held to locate and name all the pigs, correct quiz sheets are drawn out and prizes awarded.

    Of course the boar predominates in this village and the day we visited - an August Bank Holiday weekend -the local competition was to spot the dressed up boars scattered around the village.
    Here are just a few that we spotted!
