Ignore the above.....just googled it and it seems Pemberley was based on Chatsworth.

One of my favourite books 

 

Hi, OL.....as you will know, much of it was based around Derbyshire and it seems she stayed where we had lunch when she was researching for the book. I would like to think that 'Pemberley' was based on nearby Chatsworth, but probably not.

Wish I'd have known, rosemummy....I would have popped in for a cuppa. Yes, it is a lovely town, one we visit often. We had lunch at the Rutland Arms Hotel......a nice meal which we dragged-out cos it was pouring with rain.

Be patient, your SPs will soon be in flower.

PS. Jayne Austen stayed at the Rutland Arms when she was writing 'Pride and Prejudice'.

Frank, I know you are a talented poet, but it doesn't stop there......there is poetry in your every post.

Rudyard Kipling, William Wordsworth, Keats.....okay I suppose, but could they dance?

Hope so, Tracey.....you deserve them.

Hope you don't get storm damage like we've had here today. I've just returned home having visited the Peak District and there must have been a heck of a storm while I was away......given the damage & mud around.

While we were in Bakewell at lunchtime there was a heavy thunderstorm.

My first picking of Sweet Peas!

Can't get the bluddy cursor to flash outside of the quote box... but, hey-ho!  

As predicted in my post (don't know if you read it) on 27/05/14......well done.

They're a credit it to you, NE.....I've only had them from pots so far, but the first earlies from the garden shouldn't be too long.

As one who has just stumbled across this 'debate' and thus impartial, may I offer polite reminder that there is a strictly enforced 'no bickering' rule on this forum?

You have been warned.

Frank, you're the best!

Would give you a hug...cept it isn't what old soldiers do.
