42 - Samlesbury Hall - 21.08.10

After a wonderful day in the Lakes, the next day we decided to head to Samlesbury Hall .

 A stunning 14th Century Manor House
I loved the fireplaces....
A close up of the wording over the fireplace
  Henry VIII is said to have stayed there - hence the freeze above one of the doors

I even had a go at lacemaking- 

  ...and apparently I was quite good at it.. *laughs* the ladies suggested I took it up! 

Then we took a walk round the gardens and the small farm... 
Some close ups of the flowers
We saw a very large lounging Rabbits surrounded by Ducks, Chickens and Guinea Pigs! 

Jo loved the chickens!
