I have only been here once, shortly after I got married. I was twenty three back then. And although I really enjoyed it, I don't think it had the same depth of meaning for me as it would now, sixteen years on. I'll have to return. A lovely image, Neil. Very impressive.

Oooh, I'd love a floor like that! I have only seen Castle Howard from the road when we were travelling back to York from the moors. It looked amazing but we were too late to visit. You never know, one day...Like the picture Neil.

I just finished laying my floor like this, yesterday. My knees are aching right now! And they, the family, they want the same doing in the passage and hall!

Cheers Si, its well worth a return visit mate,as you say, you'll appreciate it more now..(being older and wiser!!)

I'm pleased you like this Rosa,i had to wait a while for people to move on,but you just can't avoid them all.So you want a floor like this!! Well, maybe if you ask Si nicely...there again,maybe not;-))

I'll bet the aching knees were worth it though mate,looks like more of the same to come though.
