815 St Michael and All Angels, Barton Turf.
The churchyard was alive with birds!
And onto Blicking. I have a distinct fondness to the place after many happy visits as a child - my Dad still laments that you can't park in the walled area as we did then!
They are restoring the walled garden and I look forward to seeing future progress.
The important bit.... a cup and a Fruit Scone - which was warm. It was nice but a bit stodgy in the centre maybe a BIT more time in the oven.
A trip around the garden (which had lots of Robins in good voice!
The Helibores were amazing!
The House is Jacobean but it is built around a tudor shell. Anne Boleyn and her sister Mary is said to have been born here.
This ceiling was covered up at one point and not uncovered until about 2002. I remember doing a double take on my first visit after it was uncovered.
Lunch was Potato and Parsnip soup (nice!). I opted to skip the bread and had a cheese scone. Was a tadge dry and needed a more cheesey flavour (a common complaint of cheese scones!)
