Packwood House is a beautiful and quirky Tudor house in the Midlands, part of the National Trust. Built in the 16th century, it has the period charm.
It was the first time I’ve seen a wall solar clock, very interesting.
Isn’t this a beautiful door? Looks fairy-like, a little magical.
The interior of the house is beautiful, lots of wood, as any other Tudor house.
What a lovely view.
I was admiring the stained glass when hubby acted as a paparazzi.
Hubby also saw the small locks in the fireplace mantel. The lady told us that it was the place where they used to store spices to let them dry. If the spices were expensive, they would be locked.
When the upper floor was removed, 3 of the 4 beams were cut and carved into faces of statues from other important buildings. It’s quite unique and I’ve never seen something similar in any other Tudor houses.
This is the door that hubby opened. The lady from NT didn’t have enough force to unlock the door, which was a little jammed. Hubby jumped to the opportunity and I was jealous, I wanted to try to open this heavy wooden old door with a huge iron key.
This is the door that hubby opened.
Another wall solar clock, the 3rd one that we saw.
In the kitchen garden we saw a mole deterrent. Looks quite rustic, but funny.
Scones with clotted cream and jam, our usual treat. I had a brownie too, but no pictures of that one… we were too greedy to wait.
