Ightham Mote

By Sally Pudney on 14th August 2015

A day off from writing notarial faculties yesterday – my friend Susan and I had a day ‘National Trust-ing’ and went down to Ightham Mote, near Sevenoaks in Kent. A beautiful moated house in a steep valley, the oldest parts dating back to the 1300s.

It has such a lovely atmosphere, and despite the terrific thunderstorm in the middle of the day, we very much enjoyed our visit. The house is open from 11.00am daily, with the Café and gardens open from 10.30am – I’d really recommend a visit if you are in the area.

We wondered how deep the moat was . . .

Tomorrow I’m hoping to finish off my latest painting and get it up on the website – I know it will be called ‘Essex Field Path II’, but it just needs a bit more work on the foreground.

Friday again – Yay! Hope you enjoy the weekend, whatever you have planned. 🙂
