Half day visit to this magnificent house high in the South Downs between Emswoth and Petersfield with fabulous views. The house was wrecked by a fire in 1989 but the National Trust decided to restore it to its original splendour, but conserving the correct decor and using as much of the salvaged fabrics etc. as they could. Wonderful job.
Visit to West Dean College Gardens, a twenty minute drive north of Chichester. We were lucky with the weather, managing to be in the Cafe during the two spells of rain.
Since I retired my priorities have changed.
