A Trip To Cowdray House

Yesterday we visited Cowdray House in Midhurst, West Sussex. The house. which is a ruin now, was one of England's most important early Tudor houses. The house was partially destroyed by fire in 1793 but before that it was visited by Queen Elizabeth I and King Henry VIII.

Hannah and I climbed to the top of the tower to wave to Dean down on the ground!

If there is a puddle, Hannah is in it!

I will have to put this on my list. I love the Tudor period:) that picture of Hannah is lovely with her hair blowing in the wind.

Wow, what a home! I can't imagine. Not too many castles to visit on this side of the pond, so it's fun to get to see your adventures! Thanks for sharing!
