WE’VE BEEN QUIET THIS WEEK! This week has been very getting stuff done orientated from work, appointments, book printing meetings, uni applications, clubs to parents evening that social media took a step back Today we took three hours out of crazy town, turned the 📴 which was remarkably easy this week as the pre teen is on a confiscated phone week 🙈 we went into the woods and played together - as adults it’s easy to forget the inner child and sometimes they need to come out to play too - so we are covered In mud and the small one smells like fox where he crawled through a gap in a hedge so whilst they are in the bath I thought I’d update you - we are still here working away behind the scenes to bring you our Adventure journal to bring families together. We’ve had so many messages this week telling us how people love the idea and we’re so glad you do too! Can we be really cheeky, can you all give us a share we’d love to show more People P.s we were exploring the grounds today where the new @sherlock_holmes_official Elona Holmes movie with @helenabonhamcarter_offical was filmed in the summer. We managed to get a sneak peak at the filming which was so awesome - Bella tried to hang around to get a part 😂 Lots of love The Adventuring Family #TheAdventureJournal #saturdayvibes #familytime #nationaltrust #nationaltrustmember #benthallhall #elonaholmesmovie #elonaholmes #helenabonhamcarter

Although we are closed for the season we are still working hard here at Benthall. This week we have had some of our wonderful volunteers helping us prepare the house for the winter electrical works, today they were carefully wrapping the porcelain in the library so it can be stored safely whilst the works take place. #hardwork #volunteers #porcelain #bestvolunteers #bubblewrap #acidfreepaper #conservationinaction #elbowgrease #volunteer #volunteersrock #nationaltrust #nt #tudormansion #benthallhall #benthallhallnt #benthallnt #benthall

This is one I prepared earlier during the summer....... Situated on a plateau above the gorge of the river Severn near Ironbridge, Benthall Hall has been the home of the Benthall family since medieval times and they still live here. The current house was built in 1535 and the family open its doors to the public on two afternoons a week during the summer. #nationaltrust #englishheritage #burrellsbritain #royalbutler #visitshropshire #shropshire #benthallhall #benthall #ironbridge #visitbritain #visitengland #instapics #instatraveller #instapassport #countryhouse #countryhousestyle #medieval #medievaltimes #tudor #tudorhouse #tudorengland #countrygarden #countrygardens #summer #summertime #riversevern #telford

St Bartholomew's at Benthall Hall is an austere, Reformation era church. Built in 1668, the church replaces the earlier medieval St Brice's destroyed in the Civil War along with the surrounding village. The font is the only item that survives from that original church. The interior of the church is plain and simple, the gallery added later. Hatchments adorn the walls, mostly to the Benthall family and relatives, or other tenants of the Hall such as the Browne's. Services ceased in 2007 and the building was acquired by the @nationaltrust in 2015. It is now part of the site at Benthall Hall, detailed further at @ruin_and_rampart Visited 29th October 2019 #church #benthallhall #benthall #telford #shropshire #history #architecture #stainedglass #reformation #stbartholomew #nicheandnave

Benthall Hall is a stunning stone manor house, built around 1580. It stands on the site of an earlier 12th century manor and although owned by the @nationaltrust it is still occupied by the Benthall family. Much of the fine interior and ornate wainscoting was added in 1650, the incredible oak staircase and bannister also a 17th century addition. Beneath the overmantels in the dining and drawing rooms are finely polished blocks of limestone, quarried in Yorkshire and full of crinoid fossils from the carboniferous era. The tiles hidden beneath the wooden floor of the entrance hall are by Maw and Co, local tile makers whose work can also be found in the Taj Mahal and the Titanic. The entrance hall is also home to an early 16th century Maximillian style suit of armour from Dusseldorf, with a helmet from Nuremburg and 18th century halberd. Also on the site, acting as the visitor centre, is the Reformation era church of St Bartholomew. Built in 1668, the church replaces the earlier medieval St Brice's Church destroyed in the Civil War along with the surrounding village.

This little dude runs me ragged. He’s boisterous, he’s independent, noisy, messy, stubborn, determined, mischievous, ingenious, destructive, disruptive, bold, loud, funny and completely knackering, but I wouldn’t have it any other way (well, perhaps a few less tantrums). #nature #16months #toddler #toddlerfun #benthallhall #autumnwalk #septembersun #motherhood #keepingmeonmytoes #vans #vanstoddler #babyboden

A somewhat bizarre freak of nature, the Rose Burr, Diplolepis rosae. Caused by a minute gall wasp making its home in the stem of the rose.
