What a beautiful place, ideally situated in the rolling hills of Devon. The city of Exeter is five miles away. Definitely worth the visit.
The Haldon Estate, comprising 11,000 acres, originally belonged to the Chudleigh family. It was built in the early 18th century by Sir George Chudleigh and on his death in 1738 the property was split between his three daughters who later sold it to Sir Robert Palk (1717-1798).
It had a very up and down history during Palk's ownership, with the estate being sold after Palk died to Bannatyne family, friend of Marconi who carried out experiments from the Tower. In 1925 Haldon House was advertised for £8,500 but was finally demolished except for the east wing in 1940's and has been as a hotel since 1952.

... along the Loire, but I chose to go back to Chambord, possibly one of the most outrageous buildings in Europe, and Amboise on the South bank of the Loire. I've been to Chambord a couple of times now, first time with Paul on a bike tour in the late 90's I believe, but for some reason never looked inside. So I put that right this time and checked it out. It's a massive hunting lodge built for the French royal family and apparently has a chimney for every day of the year, and a ...

... was very friendly and started chatting with the groundskeeper and asked who my people were. They said there were many Clapps in the area and yes, I looked like one of them! (We would probably be 10th cousins). He left me in Sidbury to visit the church where one of my family was baptized. After visiting that church and cemetery I had a pint at the Red Lion while I waited for the bus back to Exeter. East Ave Roomies-- Did we used to go to a Red Lion in Point? Dogs ...
