the house that Thomas built

If you were looking for your Top Gun fix then look away now.

The group has posted many shots from the National Trust village of Lacock and in particular the Abbey. Closer to home or my home in particular is the NT property of Great Chalfield Manor, which until the other day I had never visited. We were lucky with the weather and enjoyed a stroll around a quiet English garden.

This house started off as a Tudor moated Manor house by one, Thomas Troponell. At the beginning of the last century it came into the hands of the Fuller family who still live in one wing and manage the property on behalf of the NT. And the family portraits in the house give it that human lived in touch missing from some other NT properties.

I couldn't decide which image to post so if you like this sort of thing please feel free to visit @theboxmanreturns to get another dose.

As half the group descended on Fairford over the weekend and took thousands of shots between them I'm sure there will be further images of very expensive pieces of machinery defying the laws of sense and gravity.

All the best .Shady
