Inside Avebury Manor

Apparently the idea was to do nine of the rooms in the style that would have been in fashion during the tenure of the various owners. Here we are in the 30s. The green sofa in the background has to be seen to be believed.


I may not be able to comment for a few days as I am going off.....I thought there was a funny smell

Certainly not a reading room, Bill...
Bill Phillips: A place to listen to the wireless Ray and smoke a pipe in peace

Nice and 'quiet' carpet.... Great shot.
Enjoy your time in Trimland.
Bill Phillips: We had a great time Chez Trimbo. I am exhausted Chad and Richard never stop talking and I couldn't get a word in. Chris gave up altogether and played on his Ipad
You've done a great job of showing this room off, Bill!
Bill Phillips: I am obliged to you Ma'amsmile

For a minute I thought that thisI was inside Mr Comrade Trim's house Bill. I can hear you downstairs talking loudly to our host. Can you bring me up a cup of green tea.
Bill Phillips: You have to talk loudly to him 'cos he doesn't listen.

Cosy arm chairs which you might sink in to get a nap - after having seen all the furniture and the carpet it may be recreative to close the eyes for some time. I read Chad's comment and can imagine Richards 'my home is my castle'- look - sehr gemütlich and gezellig!
Bill Phillips: I love chairs like those Philine. comrade Trim's house was extremely pleasant. It had a good feel to it and should be a happy house.

What a lovely room this is Bill, very much like Mr Trim's abode in fact
Bill Phillips: It is indeed Chris. I hope your return journey was comfortable and uneventful. Mr Gutteridge was an excellent chauffeur and delivered me to my door before 4pm

I thought that this was the home of your host. I'm not keen on the carpet now of the green sofa. I wonder if you can still get the Light programme on the radio?
Bill Phillips: The carpet is supposed to represent the owner of the time's interest in Motor racing. The sofa was simply unpleasant
The art deco influence is strong in this room.
Bill Phillips: Very much so Mary

I think that carpet would give me nightmares, Bill.
Bill Phillips: The though of hoovering it or the pattern Penny ? grin
This was the 30's? Oh dear,I need to do a makeover...
Bill Phillips: I wouldn't you won't get anything half as decent now Frank
A step back in time. Is that a bottle of bubbly I see on the table between the two easy chairs, Bill? Sure would be great to sink into those comfy seats and sip a glass or two.
Bill Phillips: Sounds like a plan Beverly. I'll get the ice bucket
love every corner of this fine image Bill
Bill Phillips: What about the middle JC? smile
A superb image indeed Bill!
Bill Phillips: Thank you kindly Richard
Be careful of those odd smells...
Bill Phillips: Wise advice Larry
this is a great shot. love the wide view. does have a cozy feel to this place
Bill Phillips: This was the best of the rooms for me Ayush...apart from that sofa!
Great feel and look to this interior shot
Bill Phillips: This was the pick of the rooms for me John
