Friday, July 5.
Thought we would visit another stately home, just for a change. Imposing facade.
This door was meant to either keep you out or in, and has been doing either for quite a while.
Haven’t seen this knocker before.

This is a Staircase! Full of carving.
Couple of shop signs from Italy. From outside a locksmiths.
Nice carriage clock.
Now this is an interesting ceiling.

Just a little mantle over the fireplace.
Anyone for dinner.
Ye old kitchen.
Screen using book covers and posters.

Another view of the staircase.
Bathroom under repair.
In a three hundred room house there has to be lots of bedrooms.
A pair of Poussins. Venice and not sure.

Outside is immaculate also.
A couple of Gainsborough’s.
Finished inside, time for a walk around the gardens.
This way, no that way.
The acropolis at the end of the garden.
Sitting under the trees at a camp circle.
After an exhausting game of croquet, what else do you do?
This is inside the Yew hedge. Been there a while.
