Great Days Out: The Midlands

 Kirby Hall, England.

This weekend The Festival of History, put on by English Heritage, was cancelled- much to my dismay. With no warning of closures on their website (of course, so typically English*) -- we had to make the best of it. 
 The petrol was already spent, so we went a few miles more up to Kirby Hall .

What a lovely place to see. 

*This is another reason I always carry a copy of The English Heritage book in my car. This is not the first time "plans" have changed, unannounced. 

I textures.

 A room with a view.

This is such a glorious room.

So, our plans of viewing jousting and Medieval life may not have worked out, but this was almost as good. :)

Have a lovely weekend.


  1. What a wonderful time.....so glad it worked out. Wish you could just hop here.....we miss you Nat. Can we Skype this week when Kat is here???

  2. what fabulous photography! and really inspiring--i feel like putting up wallpaper and wainscoting in every room now!

  3. It looks like you made the best of what could have been a bad day, lots of wonderful old building and exploring.
