Arrive at 1pm was the invite - and after all this I did, bang on time!

However there was one further treat as the lunch was still in production, and almost on the lawn of the house was

YELFORD St Nicholas & St Swithun, Oxon
Almost all of c1500, and although a parish church was probably more like the chapel of the manor house. The bellcote is Victorian but inside the roof is original as is the screen and the font. Not a lot to see but this is one of those churches that remains in the memory for its siting and atmosphere.

We walked back to an excellent and filling lunch of Roast Beef and all the trimmings.............. yum!! Chat by a log fire took us to nightfall and beyond.
