thorotonbannerLeaders: Penelope Messenger and Margaret Trueman.

This excursion will go to Stow Minster first, a very large church with a fascinating history, set in a rather small village.  Doddington Hall is a beautiful Tudor Mansion, built in 1595 by Robert Smythson.  It has been occupied by the Hussey family for over 400 years.  There are elegant Georgian rooms filled with striking porcelain and furniture and tapestries.  We shall have tea in the tea room and the opportunity to wander around the formal Elizabethan walled garden.  There is also an interesting wild garden and a kitchen garden, together with a tempting farm shop.
