    ... for men was 29 years. This doesn't include the at least 10 years of design efforts required to align the crypt so that for 19 minutes during the winter solstice a golden beam of sunlight would illuminate the 10 meter high central dome. The dome was built of overlapping stone slabs capped with a 3m x 3m slab.

    ... look around the church, before Basil took us through the house and gardens. You simply would not believe what we saw - magnificent paintings, sculptures, ceilings painted like the vatican museums - even an axminster made in 1770 and still being used. It was fantastic to see that the house is still used by the family, with 4500 pheasants released into the woods this summer, ready for shoots next winter. The gardens had wonderful ...
