It was another lovely day last Sunday, and as we had Oliver for the day we decided to cross another National Trust property off our list.
Wightwick Manor (pronounced "Wittick") is a Victorian Manor house near Wolverhampton.
It was built by the Mander family who were successful 19th centry industrialist in the area and
is a grade I listed building, it was built and funished under the infulence of the Arts and Crafts movement, and is one of only a few houses where you can still see examples.
everywhere you look there is beautiful Willam Morris wallpaper and fabrics.
They hold various seasonal activities throughout the year and, as is not too far i will defintly vist again.
The yew thinmbles on the front lawn
Justd look at those chimneys!
The Breakfast room
The gardens were lovely, lots of space for little dpeople to run around
Oliver loves collecting things when we are out, a stick and a leaf are mandetory, we also came back with a stone and some pine cones this time too :-)
This week has passed by in a whirl, but I have been knitting and have things to show next time.
Plus, i'm going to see / listen to someone very interessting on Friday night :-)
I will reveal all in my next post :-)
