Whilst on errands deep in the Kent countryside yesterday we stopped off at Scotney Castle to give the children a run around.
Scotney castle, not a true castle but the ruins of a medieval moated manor house, which is on a small island on a small lake. It situated in vast grounds once belonging to the Hussey family.
At the top of the gardens is a large house built between 1835 and 1841, known as Scotney New Castle. The house has lots of Tudor revival architecture mixed in with 50's wallpaper and books. Hundreds of books, everywhere! My type of house.
My crochet blanket started a year ago in March is getting there...I felt the red was taking over so I stopped and just carried on with my favorite colours the grey and blue. No sewing, maybe later this holiday.
