Newnham Paddox Revisited

Monks Kirby, Warwickshire
Photos taken at Monks Kirby Midsummer County Fair
21st June, 2015


We visited here last year when the grounds
were open for another annual charity event
known as Daffodil Sunday.  It was fun
to see the piano (above) is still there today.



No daffodils this visit, but grounds are still beautiful.
lakes and park between 1745 and 1753.



These beautiful Grade I Listed 



And, there are wonderful views.....


Newnham Paddox is the private residence of the
Earl and Countess of Denbigh.


 Above, one of the lakes and below you can see the silhouette 
of the tower of the Church of St Edith in Monks Kirby taken
from the main drive into the park.


Here are a few more photos from the
event...adding them just for fun.


Tea, cakes, crafts...

Morris Dancing, Elsa and plenty of entertainment.

 Ice cream,
and
vintage cars
and more!

Have a good weekend.
See you next week :).

Participating in Skywatch Friday

Thank you for these wonderful photos of this gorgeous place you call home! Such splendor. And I'm glad you finally found my piano. I've looked for it everywhere and can't imagine how it got over your way!

Another thing: In my book I have a poem about Edith and I say something to the effect she could never be a saint and now I see there is or was a St. Edith. Very funny!

Have a great weekend!

lovely spot! Is that an old piano in the field? The sounds of nature in such a beautiful spot would be music enough for my ears.

This is an absolute delight, love the little ice-cream (cara)van, it's like something out of Country Living magazine! And I can't get enough of Morris dancers!

How pretty! The old piano looks a bit sad though.

Beautiful images! The poor piano.

Jack said...

Wow! It is all so beautiful. The lake, the gate, and the folks. I would have loved trailing along behind you.

Those beautiful gates remind me of the ones at the Huntington in San Marino.
