As the weekend rolled around I was desperate to get out and explore some more. The weather was somewhat relatively pleasant Saturday morning and it wasn’t until the afternoon the rain was set to fall. So I decided it was the perfect opportunity to get out the house for a few hours with my camera.
After my visit to Elvaston Castle, I checked my google maps and saw I was close to another place on my list to visit, Risley Hall. It seemed pointless heading home to come back another day when it was only another few miles down the road. In typical me fashion I decided to wing it

The opportunity to get away for a bit whilst still relatively close to home was just what I’ve needed. I’ve spent some time here over the last few years when I’ve needed to and I’ve been meaning to come and spend some time here again..
This weekend I went from the lowest of lows to a complete mentality switch and finally felt ready to start taking the next step in my recovery.
