Walk Near Basildon Park...


At the week-end we got away to the country for a break.  (I had been finishing my revisions and had got to the stage where a change of scene was necessary as I couldn't 'see' the manuscript any more).    Basildon Park is where they shot part of the Keira Knightly/Matthew Macfadyen Pride and Prejudice (2005) so of course we had to go into the house too.    It is a National Trust property and there's a small exhibition about the shooting of the film.  This costume is on display.

And here is another view of the exterior of the house foregrounded by daffodils.


The country air seemed to do the trick, as I have sent the mansucript of another Byzantine novel (medieval) off to my editor.  Fingers crossed!
