Longleat House & Grounds

Although Longleat is perhaps most famous for it’s safari park which opened in 1966, the magnificent Elizabethan house and grounds has been the home of the Thynn (or Thynne family) for nearly 500 years.

Widely regarded as one of the finest examples of an Elizabethan stately home in the country, it has been the seat of the Marquess’s of Bath since Thomas Thynne rose to that position in 1789.

Below are a few shots of the house and grounds:

Inari Church

Inari village has a population of about 600-700 people, but in the sparsley populated area of northern Finland (where there are more Reindeer than people) this counts as a bustling metropolis.

Below are a couple of images of the pretty little Church that we passed on our walk into the village:

Lichfield 14

A view from the house of Erasmus Darwin in Lichfield, an 18th century physician and grandfather to the famous naturalist Charles Darwin. It was Erasmus, a man way ahead of his time, who laid the ground-work for his grandson’s radical theories about evolution and the origin of species:
