Very interesting. I have been to Chartwell Manor several times – Winston Churchill’s home. It is situated in a very peaceful part of Kent County, secluded with a beautiful large garden (acreage). The Manor and gardens are open for visitors and it is well worth the visit.

This is what I’m talking about. These are from the days when people had more sense than to paint the trim.
Thanks for the links.

Been to Thoreau’s cabin on Walden pond (was still there 40 years ago) in the winter. You could only look in the windows. Talk about roughing it…

Thank you, what a interesting tour.
I am a big lover of books so this was a gift for me.
