A Stately Home in England

 When we were in England this past Thanksgiving, we visited a "stately home" (I can't remember the name - and right now my book is buried under Christmas packing boxes).

It was saved from destruction in the 1950s by a husband and wife who were childless. They had many nieces and nephews that visited often along with their parents. When they grew too old to take care of the house, it was given the National Trust.

The National Trust has kept the house, in the main, as it was in the 1960s and 1970s when the pair lived there. I though it was lovely.

Often very old homes have libraries for show. This one shows it was used a lot.
