Auto Pilot

My normal drive to work is via the back roads avoiding the traffic hell that is Epping. However as there is a road closed I decided that in the morning the extra mile and a half detour is not worth it and I would go through Epping (at 6:30 it's ok). I had consciously decided this this morning and the next thing I knew I had turned left bypassing Epping..... hey ho.

Stourhead

All good things come to an end........

As Stourhead was on the way it was a convenient place to stop........












































The fruit scones container was EMPTY!!! but one of the assistants brought a new batch. Ooh I thought fresh! warm! But alas not a good effort dry and stodgy :(



Trish didn't finish hers and the local wildlife weren't tempted!!



The journey post Stourhead was awful  after about an hour I managed to get to a junction and head across country safely home.....

Barrington Court

Barrington Court is tudor manor house (approx 1538).

The house was acquired by the National Trust in 1907 but it was a tenant Colonel Lyle who greatly restored it. The house is empty which I find ever so sad but well worth a visit for the fabulous arts & crafts gardens.....
























































an interesting scone...... different flour? It was merely ok.......






If any conk(!!!) can find a scent.......
