The Other Day For My Birthday!

The day before my birthday, my great friend Christine, and I, went to Cotehele Stately Home. This has the advantage that the family didn't live ibn it much for a couple of centuries, so is still as it would have been in "days gone bye".  So it is basically a Tudor home, although it still has a working water mill, and quayside, to increase the interests.

We had been about 10 years ago, but at that time only part of the house was open and it was especially to show the ravages of time, tourists, bugs, cleaning, etc of fabrics of places.

The gardens ... and Christine

I bet those tapestries were vivid when they were new!

They are still in amazing condition, considering their age

If I ever get the opportunity to go to England, I would love to see these places. So much history. Thanks for posting!

We are so lucky in Europe .... when I joined LJ all those years ago it helped to remind me how lucky I was living here.
