... and I'll take you for a walk around the garden at the Odney Club in Cookham ...
(Taken from Wikipedia site 'Trivia' - (In 2002 Cookham was at the centre of a row over the Department for Work and Pensions' description of the village's social profile as "somewhat spoiled by the gin and Jag brigade")) !!
Sir Bernard Miller was the chairman of the John Lewis Partnership from 1955-1972 and his centre is at the entrance to gardens
... and here we see the first (Stanley by Lydia Karpinska) of many sculptures on display and for sale.
I shall let the pictures guide you round ...
'If' we lived on the land, had a big garden and were rich we'd buy this one on the right above, I think it was over £4k!
It was an absolute delight spinning in the breeze!
Ivy and Sydney rat by Jon Barrett-Danes £275 each
Where's Mary Poppins?
... away from the sculptures we're still in sight of Cliveden House
We used to have one of these Viburnum Snowball bushes in our garden, it smells heavenly on a warm sunny evening.
Cookham Lock weir stream
I want to know what's in there!
It only cost us £2 each entrance fee but we'd have paid more than that just to walk the grounds without the sculptures. I can't think of a better way to spend three hours on a warm spring day.
