We went out to Langton Long on Tuesday to buy tools – as we do. A very large converted circular stable block in lovely grounds at Langton Long. Again a lovely lady, a beautiful apartment, It was very spacious and gracious. But the amazing thing was that the stable block had once belong to a large country house, Langton House, but the house was demolished in 1949 (blown up) because no one had a use for it. The kitchen wing, The Brew House, the South block, the stables, etc., are still there but not the house.
On the way home we went into a pub for lunch and standing in the garden were two full size driftwood horses. Wonderful sculptures – probably expensive.
It was a hot day and they obviously needed a drink and a nibble. Had a a lovely day out (but on business) but it was hot and I was glad to sit in our garden for a cold drink.
