Burghley HouseAugust 12 in the United Kingdom
Biggest house west of the Pennines. Why wouldn’t we go.
House built by Robert Cecil, Chief Minister of Elizabeth I and is big enough to have its own postcode.
Had it’s usual ups and downs and like a lot of places is now a charitable trust to avoid death duties.
Terrific place, muralled within an inch of it’s life with over 400 paintings on the wall. Current Marquise is married to a Director of Christies so that must help with the appraisals.
Walk, walk, walk and more to see.
Having a Rover P6 trial on the front lawn, lots of beautifully kept cars and people sitting around hoping someone will admire them.
Usual sort of day out.
Pouring with rain for part of the time so held up with all the local mothers and a zillion babies in the cafe.
For all our sakes the rain did clear it was off to the gardens.Read more
