On Thursday last I visited Audley End House near Saffron Walden in Essex as I mentioned in a previous post. This was just to have a quick look round to see what I could photograph when we make our ‘proper’ trip.

One interesting feature of the trip was that I used my new GPS navigation unit to get me there. You know – the sort of thing that talks to you and tells you where to go (in the nicest possible way of course). I have to say it beats having to keep stopping and looking at a map.

Anyway – back to the house. Beautiful bit of parkland and gardens and the house is rather large. If you went in the house without a guide or floor plan you’d probably starve to death before you found your way out again.

Some very impressive rooms so, as Arnold Schwarzenegger might have said, I’ll be back.
