Wednesday 16th May

So I moved to Buckinghamshire.

I started off picking off a few churches.

Nether Winchendon.






Quainton.






I then went to Claydon. The house has some wonderful interiors and is only a third of its original size.














North Marston church.




I then popped in Boarstall Tower. It's a small National Trust property and I had an individual tour by the resident!

Ah Pete could you clarify the date on the plaque of Richard Winwood at Quainton as I like to know the dates. The other plaque has the date of 1641 and 42 on it - is that correct as our history here only goes back a hundred. Got me very interested. (oh the pictures are good here too).

what date at Quainton? I know it gives 1691/2 at one point I've seen that a few times and I'm not certain why they do that.

Virtually all of the churches I visit predate 1540.

I never thought old buildings would be interesting but somehow you make them so

intriguing how the tilt on your pics is always to the left tho
