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.

Lovely. They go rather well with my pictures of Baddersley Clinton!

It is wonderful how many places we still have the ability to visit - the history ... if only those walls could talk.

What gorgeous pictures. So lucky that it all survived for so many years. Reminds me of some off the castles I visited in Poland. Your new camera really does its job by providing you such lovely memories.

Thanks (and Hi) ... it is a nice camera ... still getting used to the slight variations from the last one.

I have never been to Poland, but would love to visit Eastern Europe.

The first photo would make a lovely spot for a Spring wedding. I envy how green everything is in your part of the world. We are back to 100 degrees again. Our yard is so not green.

Looks like a lovely place to spend an afternoon. Beautiful photos.

As the house is square there are corners like that all the way round - so a wedding group could really "follow the sun". I don't think The National Trust does weddings, yet, however!

Oh we are so green here this summer - we have had some truly lovely sunny days, but have also had the wettest summer since records began over 100 years ago! Great combination for healthy weeds!

We had a fun day.

It is great to share nice trips with friends.

I am in awe of the absolutely breathtaking places you live so close to

I have always love history, and the brilliant thing I have learnt about my LJ firends is that I can share the pictures of our wonderful English heritage.

Sigh. Can't wait til my trip next summer, but as much as I want to spend a month or more touring the UK, we will likely have to just settle for visiting my family in Scotland for a week. Everything costs money.

Well if you end up in East Scotland you will have lots to see in Edinburgh .... not a country I know at all, but loads of history - I am sure you will have an amazing time.
