September, I'll remember

Part of the lyrics from Paul Simon's

'April, comes she will'

Waddow

17th-century manor house set in 178 acres of beautiful Lancashire 

countryside along the banks of the River Ribble.

 The memories are vague, as it is so long ago, but I have been in and across Waddow's grounds. In, with the Brownies (probably) and across taking a short cut thro' the grounds.

 For a long time now, it has been a centre for the Girl Guides Association. In these modern times, it has also become a Conference Centre.

It's even part of Lancashire Folk Lore in the tale of Peg O'Nell and her well.

In 1841, it was known as
Waddow, Mitton, Clitheroe, Yorkshire, England

The Lancashire market town of Clitheroe is on one side of the Ribble with the village of Waddington and Waddow Hall on the opposite side. For centuries, as is common in England, the river formed the county border.
