Day trip

Today was the first WI outing of the year and we went off to Southport until just after lunch when we moved onto Rufford Old Hall









We weren't allowed to take pics inside which is a real shame because they had some amazing samplers (some dating back to 1849). What annoyed me was that not only could I not take pics of them but they had no information about them at all other than they were mostly early Victorian and there wasn't a single pic in the guide book either, guess what my comment card said :)
