Part One   Part Two   Part Three

Still exploring the castle we went up a floor to what seemed like an attic full of quirky stuff,

  1. I like this – especially the rocking horses! Makes me think of the Manor at Hemingford Grey – home of the Children of Green Knowe (and one of my all time favorite books).

  2. Thank you. I suppose it is difficult to “furnish” a place that has been used for so long. That, I suspect explains the quirky stuff. However, I am at a loss as to how to explain the empty bottles in the wine cellar. Is there no consideration to authenticity? Or, did the tourists imbibe?
    Warmest regards, Ed
