Just 5 minutes cycle ride from me is beautiful Syon House in the Syon Park estate – here is info about it http://www.syonpark.co.uk/history.asp
A few weeks ago on a rare very hot day in England (dont get many of those!) I decided to go visit Syon House (basically to cool down lol). It was late in the afternoon and not many people visiting. Here is a photo of the beautiul courtyard. Photo taken with ClassicPan, then used AutoPainterII and Iris.
