Is the whole of England managed by the National Trust?
Bill Phillips: No but it should be
The national trust do a good job
Bill Phillips: The do Shane. Ange and I have been members for a long time now and we get good value for money grin

Well it's certainly standen tall - gedditt!!

Actually I will have to Google its provenance; I can't work out exactly what it is, some of this looking vaguely industrial rather than grand
Bill Phillips: Late Victorian country house with lots of arts and crafts influence inside
I LOVE your National Trust places, Bill, and would try to go to all of them in my lifetime if I lived there! Seriously.
Bill Phillips: We are working our way through them Ginnie!

You should get a special medal after having photographed so many NT houses inside and outside! I wonder about the blue gutteridge on the roof.
Bill Phillips: Yes that gutteridge is decidedly odd Philine

The National trust must be almost the largest property own in the UK thank goodness.

Sorry about the ashes!!!! no I am not lol
Bill Phillips: They own and look after not just properties but large areas of coast and other land.

We got what we deserved in the ashes. They thought they only had to turn up to win and their shortcomings were cruelly exposed.

Not all that far from me yet I've never heard of it before. Good response to Ray.
Bill Phillips: One for fans of the arts and crafts movement Alan. Nice inside

You certainly get around to these old estates. You and Brian should make a trip together as he likes them too.
Bill Phillips: We might just do that. Both he and i are NT members and i love visiting their properties
I haven't visited Standen, Bill......NT do a lot of good work. BTW I like the treatment smile
Bill Phillips: Well worth a visit Martin
Your treatment worked well here,my good man.
Bill Phillips: You are a gentleman sir. No wonder Elizabeth likes you so much
I love the trees growing against the walls here Bill! well done...
Bill Phillips: I think they are climbing roses Ronky
Not one of the houses I've heard of. but then Sussex is quite a way from us. Hoping we come on May 11th.I'm thinking about staying for a long weekend in the area and doing a couple of the Shropshire properties as well, we've been to Attingham, but not inside, and that's about it over that way.
Bill Phillips: I would think that is a good idea Brian. If you haven't already been then Sunnycroft which is Wellington near Telford is well worth a visit and isn't that far from Cosford
Frank must be. Ill, my garden shed looks better than this place.
Bill Phillips: This is a beautifully photographed late Victorian country House. Your Garden shed is probably a late Elizabethan (the second) example of shoddy construction from B&Q.
What a lovely perspective Bill! Well done.
Bill Phillips: Thank you Richard, pleased yo think so
Great treatment of a pleasing shot Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thanks John
good framing indeed Bill
