Yesterday we visited Baddesley Clinton which is a National Trust property near Warwick, it was home to the Ferrers family for over four hundred years. Here’s a brief history of the home, copied from the leaflet! One of the glories of the house is the sequence of armorial glass begun by Henry Ferrers in the 16th century. During the Reformation, the house was a haven for persecuted Catholics. There are three priest’s holes in the house (we could only find two while walking around). Later during the Victorian era, the house was home to “The Quarter” (two couples related by marriage) who were devoted to the arts, and a number of the paintings in the house date from this time.
After a mooch around the house which is set on a little island surrounded by a moat, we then walked around the beautiful grounds. Which are full of paths leading to different sections of the gardens, lakes and vegetable gardens. The grounds offered plenty of great photo opportunities, with the main house as a back drop and hidden gateways we couldn’t resist taking photos. I also got Dave to model for me, he doesn’t like this but I’m trying to add a little bit of men’s fashion to my blog. Think it’ll be good to have something for guys to look at and hopefully get inspiration from.
