Audley End House & Garden

Last Saturday we took a trip out to Audley End House and Gardens.  Its not far from Cambridge and it had been an age since we last visited.  The main house was closed, but there was still plenty to see.

Firstly we took a wander to see the snowdrops and aconites and surveyed the house from the hill




We took a look around the old kitchens and pantry










The laundry












The dairy






The meat safe and game larder




The grounds and gardens















Hope you enjoyed it as much as we did, until next time

  2. What a fascinating place! Is that an oversized privit hedge contoured into an interesting shape? Fabulous! A local house here, 'Burton Agnes' has a month of woodland wandering which is also a feast of snowdrops, many, many different varieties too. Its always a joy to wander through their grounds in Febuary too. No aconites though and those there, look eqjually joyful!

  3. Hi Sue! Popping over from Field & Fen. The scale of the food operations is mind-boggling. How many people must have been working there, to produce, process, cook, do the laundry, wash the dishes, and on and on.
