This fellow is still smiling, even if it looks an uncomfortable pose!
Another smiling fellow, I am not sure how old these carvings are, but they are lovely.
The 'W' carved into the fire surround was carved there to ward off witches.
We had a great time wandering through the house, and I was very pleased that photography was allowed. All the staff we met going round were lovely, especially the gentleman in the Chapel, whom we spent a long time chatting to, it was him who told us about the 'W' carved into the fire surround.
A statue in the 14th century Crypt.
Stone tiled floors and oak doors everywhere :)
I love the expression on this face!
Everywhere there are lovely things to look at :)
One of the many stained glass windows.
A small section of the painted Barrel Vaulted ceiling in the Tudor Chapel. It is simply beautiful :)
