A visit to Tatton Park pulled the eye in to seeing through the glass in the pineapple house, and the water in the Italian pool.At first we thought the glass was original old glass, but apparently it is not, just covered in a film to protect from U.V. rays – but it has the same effect! (I think Jan Singleton’s fabulous glassworks have made me home-in on all things glassy!

There is an interesting art exhibition at Tatton Park, similar to the one at Attingham Park’s House of Beasts – artworks outside and inside the house – including a fantasy trip to outer space in an old caravan – well worth a visit.
