Nuffield Place

Due to the volume of pics I've split today in two. Curiously we didn't visit ANYWHERE that was planned last night........ still a successful day!

We ended up at Nuffield Place which I have visited before but Trish hasn't.....

It was the home of William Morris, Lord Nuffield, the founder of the Morris Motor Company. It is a very liveable house. The garden was apparently overgrown 4 years ago when the Trust got hold if it!

Iron Lung. Morris offered them free of charge to any hospital in the commonwealth that wanted one. He was quite the philanthropist.

Apparently Trish remembers this .... :D

Trish remembers this like it was yesterday...

"ooh I had one of those....." said..... :D

The less said about this... :( looked so good !!
