Have spent a glorious day out and about, enjoying fantastic sunshine amd warm temperatures. Burghley House, near Stamford, is a treat. (Sorry about the pic – it was taken through the railings). It is a magnificent house that was built for Elizabeth I’s Lord High Treasurer, Lord Burghley. If memory serves me correctly – and I might be wrong, so apologies if I am – this house has the most chimneys on a house. 76!! The interior is sumptuous, but this time we didn’t go inside – we stayed outside, wandering around the grounds and the sculpture garden where there is always something different to see. What took my eye this time was an elephant. How wonderful is this chap?
