Last Saturday Pam and I went to Arlington Court, a National Trust property not far from Barnstaple. The weather was not very promising when we left and it rained quite hard just after we had arrived at the Coach Museum which is part of the property. The purpose of the visit was for Pam to demonstrate the rag rugging she does as part of the Lifton Hookers group. Some other members of the group were there the previous day but Pam was all by herself today.
The weather improved a lot shortly after we set up the display which gave hope for some visitors. In the event it turned out to be a very busy time and Pam was kept at it most of the day. We stayed there until the place closed at five o'clock. A lot of interest was shown and several had a go at it, although mostly children. Many of the adults seemed a bit too shy to have a go, but the youngsters were happy to try it out. A very successful day for Pam and an enjoyable day for me.
I did take the opportunity to have a quick look around the house which is about a quarter of a mile away. I also took the chance to buy a book mark and a coaster as mementos. Here is a picture of part of the display.
