James - totally fascinated
Over Easter Christine & I went to 4 different Houses.

The first of which is the 16 sided house, A La Ronde, built by 2 cousins in the 18th century to house all their collections from the European travels.

Love this Jacobean embroidery ... any guesses as to what it is?  It is Moses being rescued by Pharoah's daughter!

I’ve seen that house on the TV. It’s really unusual isn’t it!
