Rufford Abbey travelogue

Another busy day. The painters were in action at the Harding hub alongside the exercise class. Down at the Parkgate hub it was competitive games and fun. While a group visited Rufford Abbey Country Park for another episode in the Social Eyes Green Team travelogue.

Rufford Abbey Country Park is the estate and grounds of a former 12 century Cistercian Monastery and country house. One of the main country parks that make up the broader Sherwood Forest area, the attraction is popular with visitors throughout the year.
