Event description

Description

We shall meet in Juniper Green Village Hall on Baberton Avenue before setting off for a walk of about a mile and a half to explore the area Sir John would have known. Juniper Green is built on his land and he developed his estate on both sides of the river, planting a garden and woodlands while noting down every purchase and payment to servants in his Account Books. There are details too of his family, friends and sporting life and of the expenses incurred in living in Woodhall House. His account books give a wonderful insight into the life of this genial old man. The originals are held in the National Library of Scotland. We shall finish with a visit to the newly refurbished Woodhall House as privileged guests of the new owners. Booking is essential and to book your place (maximum 15 places) please phone Liz on 0131 453 4517. Walking shoes and waterproofs will also be essential: this is a November walk!
