Shugborough in the Sunshine

Ignoring the forecast of “possible showers”, we took the MX-5 for a run down to Shugborough today, meeting up with Diane and Les for one of our periodic outings.

Decent early lunch in the Lady Walk Tearoom, followed by a look round the house and gardens.

Impressed with the comfortable, “lived-in” feel of many of the rooms. Enjoyed looking at the reconstruction of Patrick Lichfield’s portrait studio, with various items of period photgraphic gear; some really nice photos too, of course.

Spotted this chap fishing on the far bank of the river. (Though I’m not sure if “fishing” is quite accurate — that catch looks distinctly un-fish-like to me!)
