Upton House

So I left Hidcote and where to?

I've been to Upton House many times BUT they have a special event on this year!

Upton was owned by the family who formed Shell and they had a merchant bank as well. When WWII broke out the merchant bank was moved to Upton. The NT have for this season presented the house as it was during the war..... I might add it is a really good way to present the house!

and another Painted Lady!

Ooh! I do love Upton House and Gardens - the volunteers are lovely there too and I'll never forget the Strawberry and Cream sponge we had there! Good to see "the" bathroom again as well :)
