Springtime at Rufford

Today we visited Rufford Old Hall a National trust property situated near Ormskirk, south-west Lancashire.

Around 1530, Sir Robert Hesketh built a timber framed manor house at Rufford. The Great Hall, the central part of the house is a magnificent example of Tudor hammerbeam construction and survives to this day remarkably intact.

Two well informed guides gave us talks on the history of the family and the Great Hall.

My aim is to create a photo diary of my walks and my travels. I have two main hobbies, walking and photography and these complement each other. I am a senior citizen, what used to be called an old age pensioner, but I don't feel old. Since retirement I have had more time to pursue my hobbies and the opportunity to travel more. My philosophy now is - Do what you can, while you can. My other interests are fine wines and keeping fit. These may not complement each other but keep me happy.
