NOUGHT LIKE BIT OF NEL­SON

EDP Norfolk - - GREAT NORFOLK HOMES -

2018 sees the 175th an­niver­sary of Nel­son’s col­umn, so why not cel­e­brate Nor­folk’s naval hero by head­ing off the beaten track? Ho­ra­tio reg­u­larly stayed with his god­fa­ther at another In­vi­ta­tion to View prop­erty, Wolter­ton Hall near Ayl­sham, but what is the sweep­ing oak stair­case from his last res­i­dence, Mer­ton Place, do­ing in Brin­ton Hall near Mel­ton Con­sta­ble?

Esme and Jeremy Bag­nal­lOak­ley are de­lighted to share the the­o­ries, as well as tales of work­ing their way back to their roots; their award-win­ning re­in­state­ment of Georgian win­dows; the site of a Ro­man villa; ha-has, snow­drop the­atres and walled gar­dens. Look for­ward to a mini-mu­seum feel, Jeremy’s bite-size or­gan recital in the church and a tremen­dous af­ter­noon tea com­plete with Esme’s home­made jams.
