Tissisngton Hall

Enjoyed a day out at Tissington Hall in Derbyshire. Privately owned in a small village famous for well dressings.

The room I liked the best was the library. Not just because of the books most of which were collected many years ago but because it was a room I could imagine spending many hours in. It felt comfortable with window seats, which I've always wanted and never had.

New to me about the family - Alleyne Fitzherbert, diplomat and traveller took his title St Helens from the family house in Derby and Mount St Helens in America is named after him.
