Where I stayed
After a bite of lunch we went to visit Baraset House. Mark and Adela H. Welcomed us so graciously. All that was left of the old house was one of the servants wings and it was extremely delapidated. Put me in mind of the condition of many of the houses in Oakleigh and Detonte Square and the work that had to be done
Our next visit was to meet my relatives at Walton Hall. Again we couldn't have been treated more graciously. Sir Andrew Hamilton and his mother, Lady Elizabeth, were welcoming and informative. They showed us pictures of some of the Hamiltons and the Mordaunts. We had tea and scones. I shared the information that I had with me and I think they were most appreciative.
As we left we stopped into Walton Hall to take a picture of the Hamilton coat of arms which is in the bar there. We sat down for a quiet drink, but were inundated by a huge group who were there on conference. Loud networking!
Ended the evening at The Ferry Inn, Alveston.
Such a great meal! Good food, good friends, and a really great pub owner!!
