Our outing started from the Winchcombe library. From there we saw the magnificent magnolias en route to Evesham, the lovely villages of the Lenches, with so much plum blossom and hedgerow blossoms , onto Worcester and our tea destination, the parish hall at Clifton on Teme, where we were treated to a magnificent WI tea!
Onto Great Witley to see the amazing baroque church.
