In My Own Backyard

When we lived at our other house I had a walking routine that went through some fields and in the distance I could see this large building, and I’ve been curious ever since about what it was. Thanks to the amazing Google Earth I was able to track it down as a hotel called Latimer Place and on my walk I found a way to get closer. The building was called Latimer Manor in 1615 and was a manor house of a large farm. So it’s not in my backyard, more like about a 30 minute walk away, but beautiful just the same.
