Calke Abbey in the Rain

There wasn't a cloud in the sky when I woke this morning however it has rained non-stop since 10 this morning!! Now if you have small children you'll know how hard it can be - I have an 82 year old father :D Dad hates rain.



The walled garden is rather pretty.
















Dad waiting for the house to open, looks happy doesn't he :D




The house was given to the trust in the 80's and has been virtually left as is. The family used to collect stuff and when a room filled up they shut the door!


















The bed was ordered in the 18th century and left unopened ! Amazing isn't it.




Lets hope for better weather tomorrow!

Shame about the rain but you got some nice photos Pete. Looks an interesting place to visit (for a hoarder like myself :D).
