An amazing tour with our guide Paul who was very entertaining.  Stoneleigh Abbey Park was  once visited by Queen Victoria, Jane Austen, Charles II and the man off  The Antiques Road Show.  We saw Chippendale fireside chairs valued at £80,000 each, a tree that is reputed to be 1,000 years old, beautiful marble fireplaces, plaster work and portraits.  Ken and John took a walk down to the river.  We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
