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!
