Day 32 - Bishop's Waltham - Bath

We spent this morning at the National Trust property of Mottisfont, which started life as a Priory and had many changes until it ended as a country estate.  We enjoyed walking in the beautiful gardens and by the river, where we could see numerous trout.  We explored the house, which was was interesting, but there was a magnificent room painted by Rex Whistler in the trompe-l'oeil style which we particularly liked.

Look what I found in the old sacristy
We headed over the lovely Salisbury Plains to Bath and managed to fit in a visit to the Abbey late afternoon.  We had a fun night on the Bizarre Bath comedy walk.

I fell in love with the Choir Musical Angels along the top of the Choir Screen
