The Blaise Castle Estate is a huge park in Bristol and well worth a visit. Besides the walks we enjoyed the House Museum and the folly which happened to be open yesterday thanks to a group of volunteers.
|The House Museum|
The museum houses a very interesting collection of objects found in the home such as Victorian toilets and baths, kitchen equipment, old toys and dolls, some period costumes, etc.
|During primary school I actually sat on a desk very much like these.|
The folly is the one featured in Jane Austen's novel Northanger Abbey and is representative of the gothic architecture built in Bristol at the time.
