On Saturday afternoon we trundled a few miles from where my friend lives through gorgeous little villages until we reached Petworth. Petworth is very pretty and on such a beautiful afternoon reminded me slightly of a french village.
It has some very gorgeous shops and antique centres. We wandered around a huge and stunningly beautiful house that was full of treasures from France. The prices made our eyes water!
I loved this artist painting at the end of the passage way, and we admired the many vintage cars that kept driving by. The village is near Goodwood race track and they are holding a vintage rally in a couple of weeks time, but I think many of the locals own these gorgeous vehicles.
The gent who got out of this could have stepped straight out of The Waltons - he had a checked shirt and dungarees on.
After a saunter around the village, we moved on to the big house. We didn't have time to look around inside, but it was so nice that a walk around the parkland.
It is a gorgeous part of the world and one that we need to explore more of.
