Canons Ashby

Canons Ashby an Elizabethan house in Northamptonshire. Until it passed in to the hands of the National Trust it had been owned by the Dryden family since around 1550. The family never had lots of money so the house hasn't been modernised as some have. The church is the background used to be a Priory, what remains is only a quarter of the original church.

Baddesley Clinton & Packwood

Between  Warwick and Solihull are two lovely old National Trust properties that are just two miles apart so can easily be visited in a day.

Baddesley is the older but even Packwood is tudor.

Baddesley Clinton and its moat.

Packwood and its fine yew garden.
