Sherborne St John, Basingstoke
Hants. RG24 9HL
This year’s annual outing will be a day trip to the beautiful house and gardens at The Vyne, just north of Basingstoke. Originally built as a Tudor palace, the Grade I listed building became the home of the Chute family in the 1600s, and they continued living there until it was passed to the National Trust in the 1950s.
The plan is to take a lunchtime picnic, meet up between 11 and 11.30, and picnic in the parking area near the entrance. If you are able to stay on in the evening, we shall meet for a meal in a nearby restaurant, the White Hart at Sherfield.
