More of that later, first of all I called in at the kitchen gardens on the way to the house.
I loved this sunny, summery little flower border.
I thought this little set-up was gorgeous; the lopsided window and the climbing rose
The doorway through to the old cloisters.
You might recognise these cloisters because they have been used in some quite popular films.
This is where Harry wins Dibby his freedom by tricking Lucius Malfoy into giving him a sock.
I just love doorways like this. What's in there?
And this is just about the most famous and most important window in the history of photography. The window, taken from the inside (which I wasn't allowed to do) was the subject of William Fox Talbot's first successful photograph.
These are copies of his negative and eventual positive images of the window, the first photographs as we would recognise them today. This image was taken in the summer of 1835.
Another intriguing doorway, this time blocked up.
