ABC 3rd round

This week 'E' is the letter.
This is a photo of Egglestone Hall.(courtesy of
this site.)It is located in Teesdale , a beautiful area of Co. Durham, close to the market town of Barnard Castle.The grounds of the hall are open to the public and cookery courses are held at certain times of the year.It has seen a revival of interest lately as the T.V. series,'Ladette to Lady' was filmed there. The hall, being a finishing school in the past was obviously chosen as a good venue, with cookery, etiquette and deportment teachers being readily available.
Check out Mrs. Nesbitts place for more photos.

Love this pic and, in fact the whole post! I had no idea Egglestone Hall was a real place and operated in many ways like the series! And I am hooked on the TV series! Delightful madness!
