Ted Heath's House

No not the band leader but our former Prime Minister Sir Edward Heath or Grocer Heath as he was sometimes known. I didn't realise he lived in Salisbury from 1985 until his death in 2005

What a beautiful house and grounds Bill. Wonderful pictures.
Bill Phillips: It is. We were lucky that they were having an open day. Normally you have to book

Looks like Teddy wasn't short a quid, then!
Bill Phillips: This place wouldn't come cheap that's for sure
A beautiful home and garden!! Nice collage!
Bill Phillips: It looks out at the cathedral and the garden is a delight. The house would make a wonderful family home but Heath was a bachelor and the house is more like his personal museum

I remember seeing and talking to him in Salisbury many years ago. Love the selection of pictures of and round his house
Bill Phillips: Fancy! The house is interesting. not so much a home even when he lived there but more his personal museum.

A fine collage, and in the background the tall spire of Salisbury Cathedral. Yes, I remember well Sir Edward Heath and his special humour!
Bill Phillips: He was not the most popular of Prime Ministers

I liked him really, he was a very cultivated person: "At school his talent for music was recognised and he won a prize for playing Bach, Mozart and Chopin.... His love of music deepened as a result of his association with the Oxford Bach Choir. He never lost his enthusiasm for music which culminated with him conducting the London Symphony Orchestra."
(Today I'll take part in a Mozart Seminar, Oh, I hope to enjoy much pleasure. A lovely weekend for you all, too, it has been promised to be a sunny, fine autumnal day! )
Bill Phillips: He was a fine musician and sailor. As a leader of the country he was somewhat a failure

Nice collage Bill, especially your first pic. Very neat and tidy. Also a bit of a band leader in his time though!
Bill Phillips: I think he would have regarded himself as more of an orchestral conductor.grin
Pretty darned nice!
Bill Phillips: It is indeed Mary. I can't imagine what this house in the cathedral close would be worth!
He messed about in boats as well
Bill Phillips: Morning cloud pictures and models abound within
How strange, I was reading about this house only a few days ago and here it is. It certainly looks a very nice place to live.
Bill Phillips: It would be very nice indeed Brian. Heaven knows what it would fetch on the open market
Yes - he'd somehow manage to wangle a dwelling in the cathedral close, I believe smile Since he appears to have been totally devoid of charm, I wonder how he managed it?
Bill Phillips: Yes this is in the Cathedral close. I assumed he bought the house but where his money came from I have no idea. Not the most charismatic of politicians

Well I knew he lived there but I'd overlooked that he had died! I believe the house is a museum (oh yes, your link confirms it).
It's certainly a fine place to live.and must have taken a certain amount of 'influence' to acquire.
