A trip up the A1 recently took us to Burghley House, where the gardens offer all kinds of extraordinary photo opportunities:
Peterborough Museum was formerly a grand private house that was converted into an infirmary in 1856, for the poor of the town. Patients were greeted and assessed in a tiny room which is now the Museum Cafe, and those needing operations were lifted up on a stretcher through the stairwell of the grand curved stairs, using a pulley arrangement suspended from the ceiling. As if that were not alarming enough, this would be the sight to greet you, if you survived the ascent.
