Cotehele House - Pic Scam

As I reported here on Friday I went to Cotehle house with Christine on Friday and had the added pleaseure of learning about the damage the years bring.  "We" are lucky that the house was abandoned in the 15th century when a new home was built in Plymouth (later bombed) ... this was we get to see the house, and the original hangings etc.  As the family upgraded, the older furnishings were stored at Cotehele, leaving us with a wonderful legacy today.
