Houses of the Unfeasibly Rich #2

Something strange has happened to our weather. Having had a sunny day two weeks ago for a visit to the ostentatiously large historic property at Cliveden, on Friday we had yet more sun. We’ll be getting spoilt. Friday’s bout of

Houses of the Unfeasibly Rich #1

Let’s face it, I’m first and foremost a nature lover; wildlife and natural grandeur, that’s me. I am not a great one for fancy piles of the conspicuously rich whose gardens occupy the space of provincial town.  Mind you, if
