And so over the bridge we went. Tower Bridge is the most fantastic structure. Hubby was interested to read that the average speed of vehicles over the bridge these days is 10 miles an hour - roughly the same as it would have been when it was built! Progress hey!
Whistlejacket by George Stubbs was comissioned by the Fitzwilliams at Wentworth Woodhouse, and a copy of it still hangs in the house. I believe they sold it for death duties (it was sold for over 11 million pounds). It is a huge painting as it is a life size portrait. Hubby was delighted to find it hung next but one to "The HayWain" - his favourite painting. It was a great way to finish our day.
