Lady Lucy’s Walk

Lady Lucy's Walk is found on the grounds of Wentworth Castle,  South Yorkshire, U.K.  It is named for Lucy Wentworth, the daughter of the Earl of Stafford, who is said to have fallen in love with the estate's gardener but was forbidden to marry him due to the difference in their social status.  She later died of a broken heart. The huge European limes were planted in the 1920's and Lady Lucy's ghost is rumoured to linger among them.  We didn't meet any ghosts on our visit but walking the beautiful pathway does feel as if you have entered another world!
