Back home, unpack & late lunch and finally got away at 3:30. Dave & Linda had decided to take me to nearby Witley Court, they had never been there.
It was an amazing old home, parts of it Jacobean & parts Victorian, apparently Edward the 7th used to visit there for shooting parties
After exploring gardens and ruins we headed up to the church! They say it's unique in England for the very special enamel painted windows and the italianate decor. The walls are all creamy white with molding in gold. There was a gold leaf mosaic behind the alter! We were gob-smacked!
Home for a nice cup of tea and some of Linda's cake of which there seems to be a never ending supply and I don't have the strength to decline.
Sacked out in front of the Telly and watched a fascinating documentary about an artistic celebration of Titian, there was art, music, poetry and ballet.
