Long time readers will know just how long I have been hankering after this day.
We live less than a mile away from Wentworth Woodhouse, a fascinating and extremely large, still privately owned country house. A unique and very very special place. It has been home to 2 UK Prime minister's, has seen Anna Pavlova provide after dinner entertainment for visiting Kings & Queens, and has many many secrets still to reveal.
It was rumoured that the current owner - one Mr Clifford Newbould(an ex Architect) - was a recluse, but it turns out that this was a false rumour. He actually has very ambitious plans for the place. I believe that the Fitzwilliam family still have some kind of control over the house, but they must have given their blessing to Mr Newbould as he is keen to save the house from decline.
Something else ticked off the Bucket List!
