There are 4 churches in the area that are on my list unticked so today I was going to spend the morning visiting them AND the afternoon was to a National Trust property I'd never been to.
793 St Mary East Brent.
onto 794 St Mary, Axbridge
alas the next was locked, the village looked a bit of a dump so I wasn't overly surprised.
795 St Mary, Yatton
lots of these in the churchyard!!
The National Trust property, Clevedon Court, was not open to 2pm and I was early so I pulled my car up and had lunch. I bought some sarnies from a village I had driven through. So I munched on my sarnie whilst the rain HAMMERED down reading a book and listening to the Radio 3 lunchtime concert. But you know what? At 1:58pm the rain stopped!!! Don't believe me?
The property has a nice collection of glass.
It's a shame that the house is so near a busy road!
The "cafe" is a small kiosk in a disused building. Totally different to the waitress service at Ickworth but I prefer the more rustic approach! A nice piece of light (their words) fruit cake.
At about 3:25 the heavens opened so I decided to call it a day. Another good day, the weather so far hasn't stopped me...... I have a bad feeling my luck will run out!
