Barrington Court, Somerset

One day last week I visited Barrington Court, near Ilminster in Somerset. Now, I used to live at Ilminster but had never been to Barrington before. It's amazing how we seem to neglect the things right on our own doorsteps.

Anyway, Barrington Court is a Tudor manor house dating from the sixteenth century with a later manor house next door. Part of it is still lived in but some of the house and grounds are open to the public. It is not as big or impressive as Montacute which I visited a couple of weeks ago but it was still good to get out and take photos of somewhere new.
