Six years ago I made the decision to write a blog at the time I had a vague idea of what I wanted to achieve but I thought I’d give it a go and see what happened.

It’s just that when given the opportunity to visit some of the most gorgeous cathedrals, castles, villages, houses and gardens, we have in England, I feel it my duty to share what I see with all of you. It would be so […]
