Wimpole

After leaving Burghley, I whizzed down the road to Wimpole Hall just outside Cambridge - and of course had to have a moment of car drama - I hit a BIG rabbit and he broke part of the underside of the car. So the nice repairman came, fixed it, and I got into Wimpole Hall for the last 50 minutes of the day!

A beautiful house, 18th C., added to and refurbished during the 19th and 20th Centuries. Some amazing architects including our man Kent and John Soane did some amazing things. The last owner did a very good restoration, making it a v. livable house in the process.
