Taking advantage of this brief warm weekend, Sig Other and I visited Lyme Hall, the scenic location used as Pemberley in BBC's Pride and Prejudice. You'll instantly recall it as soon as I mention Colin Firth and wet white shirt.
Sunny though it was, Sig Other was not moved to replicate this iconic scene, but in a romantic gesture soon after we first met, he took me to see 'Pemberley' in December when the frost glinted on the lawns and the little lochan (what's the English version of lochan?) was iced over at the edges. Again, no C.F. or any other exhibition of manly drippiness.
Today the Hall was open as part of the Heritage Open Days, so this time we saw round the house and gardens after picnicking in the grounds near the mill pond.
