... the Boleyns lost the castle (taken from them by Henry VIII after Thomas died), the castle came into the hands of the Waldegrave family who were Catholic. During the later years, when Catholicism was banned, the Waldegraves practised as Catholics in secret. We saw a priest hole where a priest hid and in fact one died in there.

After a long leisurely lunch (Gabby also had lunch), we finally hit our first attraction of the day - The Victoria &Albert Museum. Everyone was tired (what did they do?) so opted to go to the cafe.
