It's very pretty. Here are some photos from outside.
|Oxborough Church - the roof and steeple fell in after the war! |
They couldn't fix it and so it serves as a smaller chapel for baptisms and small sermons.
|This poor over-wintered peacock butterfly couldn't get out.|
Unfortunately it was too high for us to reach it :(
|Approaching the house|
|As gaudy as it is with good lighting, I kinda loved this wallpaper.|
|Queen Mary of Scots's sewing stuff!|
This used to be a toilet but after the ban on Catholicism under Elizabeth,
it was reinvented as a Priest's Bolt Hole. When Elizabeth and her men
came to stay or inspect, the priest would hide down there.
There is room to stand in the tunnel, just.
|For some reason they made this tower's ceilings like this. |
Not hollow fan-work, as in Ely Cathedral, but solid brick work.

|The house on its moat from the back.|
|From the side.|
|From the woodland trail.|
