    Mr Darcy is my favorite caracter of all J Austin stories, and seeing your page brought lovely memories to my recent visit there. Took me a bit to find it, got lost on M56&M60 but it was worth it!! Valentina

    Looks like a great place, especially in your pictures. No wonder the ghosts don't want to leave it.
