Lullingstone Castle by peadar

Lullingstone Castle

Courtesy of Wikipedia:
"Mentioned in the Domesday Book, the manor of Lullingstone was acquired in 1279 by Gregory de Rokesley, who served eight terms as Lord Mayor of London. It passed down in the Rokesley family for several generations before being sold to the Peche family. The present manor house was started in 1497 by Sir John Peche, High Sheriff of Kent for 1494-95 and later (1509) joint Lord Deputy of Calais. Henry VIII and Queen Anne were regular visitors to the house."

Apologies for the mass upload clogging up your inboxes; living on the edge of London, we are only 10 minutes' drive from the Kent countryside, and the weather today was too good to miss after a long and dreary lockdown winter.

Many thanks for all your recent comments, every one is very much appreciated.
