Childhay weekend

Last weekend we stayed in a remote manor house near Childhay, Dorset. On the Friday we visited Montacute House (https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/montacute-house) .

Saturday started with a bike ride, starting from Childhay,which was due to be about 18 miles but was extended when a road  turned into a footpath only causing a 5 mile detour. A visit to Lyme Regis was followed by a 4.5 mile walk. The evening was finished off with dinner in a local pub.

Sunday saw another hilly bike ride to Charmouth and back. After lunch we drove to Evershot, Somerset and had a 6 mile walk.

We had marvellous weather over the weekend but Monday brought rain. Originally were were going to visit Stourhead but decided to leave that for another day and instead went to the Haynes International Motor Museum.

Here are a selection of photos from the weekend.

Standen

We went to Standen, Sussex (http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/standen-house-and-garden ) yesterday as we couldn’t make the start of the scheduled ramble. Some of the volunteers were dressed in typical costumes of the time (Arts and Crafts) relating to Standen House. There has been a lot of work since our last visit and some parts I didn’t recognise. Here are some photos :
