After receiving a refund for a coffee and a write up on the house’s history, twenty four of us set off for Nostell in Wakefield in the rain – but this quickly cleared to give us a lovely day of smiles and chats – with a very pleasant walk around the lake with the trees just starting to turn – the sun even came out and allowed us to sit outside for lunch.
The house itself was like a dolls house (in fact there was an enormous dolls house on the top floor) – quite cosy – lots of small rooms a bit of a maze – but the Chippendale ‘wow’ – everywhere – made to measure for the house and such variety – in the library what looked like a wooden chest opened up to provide a pull out Chippendale library ladder – and what we thought were ceramics were actually made of wood – amazing. There was even a 300 year old wooden clock – and the demonstration of how to make marble paper was fascinating.
A really interesting and happy day – everyone said they had thoroughly enjoyed it.
