- POTD 4 May 2005: Waddesdon Manor 4 May 2005
Fountains and main driveway to Waddesdon Manor, Buckinghamshire
We travelled south day. Our final destination will be Hastings to see a performance of “The Last Bombshell” – a one act play that I wrote a few years ago. Tonight we are stopping just outside Oxford and visiting Waddesdon Manor.
