Since it was such a long way to go we made a full day and visited Kedleston Hall, a National Trust property near Derby. It was Robert Adam's first major building commission and was designed purely to be a showpiece palace and for lavish entertaining. Fabulous fireplaces!!! There was a lot of parkland to the property so we really enjoyed strolling around in the sun. Mind you, when you were out of the sun the breeze was pretty chilly.
Well sorry that I have droned on a bit. Hope you are all feeling well and if not then I really hope you are well again soon. I went out to stock up the bird feeding station and it is really cold, foggy and miserable. Glad we went up to Derbyshire yesterday!!
