Day 254 - September 11th

Today we went to the Warden Abbey Vineyard Open Day.

We wandered among the vines and then joined one of the guided tours where we learned about the history of the vineyard and production of the wine.

The Letchworth Morris Men were once again at the event and whilst we didn't get to see them perform, we did see them practicing and entertaining the children.

Before leaving we visited the sales tent and picked up a bottle of sparkling wine.
