Last week weekend the sun was shining so we seized the day and drove out to visit another National Trust property,
near Wrexham, in North Wales
which is one of Britain's finest stately homes.
Built 1684-87 and extended in 1720
Such a beautiful warm day and this little cosy corner was a haven of shade. I loved the thoughtful gesture of a basket of beautiful wool blankets left there which could be borrowed to sit on the elegant lawns.
The lovely view of the folly and beyond, through this beautiful window, must have been such a distraction to the kitchen staff.
The playroom was my favourite stop
I wouldn't fancy a shower in this bathroom!
There were so many quirky artefacts to see
This fascinating picture of Queen Victoria was created in totally writing and cleverly told the history of her life.
Posters in the estate manager's office... quite a reward for those days.
It was a really good, interesting, day out on a beautiful, precious, sunny September day.
I wonder where we'll get to next on our history trail?
