Queen Victoria had ties and visits to Claremont and celebrated her 21st birthday in the house, which is now the Claremont Fancourt School..
and look the other way.. over the lake.
A view of the house which is not accessible to visitors..
The Thatched Cottage.. the contents being games and dressing up clothes for children
This amphibian vehicle was clearing weed from the lake
Amazing fungi.. yet to be identified
and finally an excellent scone as usual for lunch.
A further wander round the lake.. in the rain before heading home.
