   Englefield Estate in Berkshire, England. The village of Englefield is mostly within the bounds of this private walled estate, which reputedly dates back to the time of King Edgar the Peaceful (900’s AD). Edgar wasn’t particularly peaceful (he snatched the Northumbrian and Mercian kingdoms from his older brother and killed a fellow suitor for his lady love) but his reign was peaceful and that is all that matters.

   Wakehurst Place, a National Trust property near Ardingly, West Sussex, England. Wakehurst Place contains a late sixteenth century country house as well as 2 square kilometres (500 acres) of walled and water gardens. A bit of autumnal foliage is definitely in order today! Which basically means I want to post them.

  The Mermaid Inn, established in the 1100’s and rebuilt in 1420, is the most stunning building in the plethora of magical houses which populate the ancient medieval village of Rye, East Sussex, England. The Inn is near the top of the famed cobblestone Mermaid Street; the former Middle Street which has been Rye’s main thoroughfare for over a millennium. The infamous Hawkhurst gang of smugglers hung about here in the 1730s and 40s with their loaded pistols spread out on the tables and defiant expressions on their faces. Nobody bothered them.
   The Mermaid Inn has a myriad of secret tunnels (as does all of Rye. It’s a wizard town, like Hogsmeade) including one which leads to the cellars of the Old Bell Inn (built 1390) on The Mint, the curving street north of Mermaid Street. Themed Dickensian guestrooms boast beautifully carved beds, Caen stone fireplaces, and latticed windows; the head of a secret stairway is concealed behind the bookcase in the Dr. Syn room; and an assortment of ghosts have been seen so frequently by convincingly terrified visitors that it is considered the most haunted Inn of England.
   The Lounge Bar has an enormous open log fireplace- tall and deep enough for grown men to walk about in- with beams that traverse the width of the room supported on stone piers. In the chimney breast (the portion of wall that projects forward over a fireplace) is a Priest’s Hole where Catholic priests were hidden.
