The house and grounds are just stunning. Temple House is a classical Georgian mansion set in a private estate of over 1,000 acres. The present manor was redesigned in 1864 but there are parts that date back to well before that.
In the grounds down by the lake are the buildings established by the Knights Templers in the 12 century. There is so much history to the place which you can read about here.
I really had a wonderful time looking around the house and gardens. One of the things that intrigued me most though was in the dining room above. My newly charged camera batteries died on me. I replaced them with another set of newly charged batteries…they died too! When I got home and looked at the photo I saw ‘lights’ to the side of the window. Ghostly goings on? Or just co-incidence? The rest of my photos are here. (no more spooky captures though).
