There was so much information to take in yesterday that I need to post more/ photos and sights- yesterday I only touched on this remarkable Victorian woman Marianne North who dedicated her life to botanical drawing and toured the new world- below is a link to more information.
I paraphrase a little bit of wisdom she said- 'A joke was often my best travelling companion- better that man or money."
Then there was the badger's keep for children to crawl through- amazing. Our grand son would rush through it with glee.
and in the woodlands...
And to finish - the Orangery- what a building- designed by Chambers also.
