Over on Twitter today we were swapping our favourite books, especially history – via our shelfies.
I’ve wanted to see Copped Hall since I was a child, but it was in a dangerous and ruinous condition so that wasn’t likely. Since the late 90s however, the trust has been set up to preserve it.
Proud to visit it today and have a fabulous tour (with cake)!
This house is set in a beautiful park, and it is VERY MUCH restored. Most people probably know more about the park than they do about the house, but I enjoyed a tour around it.
Nice warm day too!
Aka the snuggly Merrick cat.
So the connection to Belle was Scone Palace where her portrait with Lady Elizabeth resides! It was a last minute surprise and we had a nice picnic there too.
Popped by The House of Dun too which I hadn’t been to for years, love it.
For some art research. Wouldn’t be complete with a coned Wellington and horse outside GoMA!
…and an excellent opportunity for graveyard photography.
Just one picture to tease you from my trip to London. I’d never been to Greenwich before so I had to see the Naval College and Queen’s House. Beautiful location.
Early morning at New King’s.
Afternoon at the harbour at Gourdon.
