There are individual bell boxes for each room, such as this one which reads: "His Grace's Bedroom". above right: another view of the entrance staircase. It was a truly memorable day in the English countryside. My sincere thanks to the Duke and Duchess, their home is simpky incredible. Tomorrow I spend the day in Grantham, and the Lesicestershire area. Hop to see you again soon!
