An enthusiastic lady in the tourist office in St Ives told us that a trip out to Lanhydrock Castle was a must so we drove out there. It was in a beautiful setting with gorgeous flowers and the interior of this huge place was fascinating to see.
This was on a dresser of the lady of the house. One of the volunteers there had been a little girl when the family was still living here. They had nine children. I swear I could smell violets while standing there.
