  1. What fabulous videos, beautifully presented! I loved the detail on the Trapani casket and the various stone work. Imagine all the stories it could tell us of where it has been. Fascinating!!
    Viewing from Australia. Wishing all the best to those at Compton Verney, it is a wonderful place.

  2. Compton Verney is such a special place and how wonderful to see the grounds and watch a presentation of one of the many fine objects in the gallery. It takes one on a journey to a different world and a different place. Thank you.

  3. I was at Compton Verney in January 1994 for a meeting and was shown round the grounds by the then head gardener John Schumann. John had worked for previous owners and lived nearby. I had never seen aconites and John was particularly proud of the mass of yellow flowers. ‘Spring is on the way’. The house was derelict and Sir Peter Moores had only recently acquired the estate. Who could have guessed what a great success it would all become. I expect the aconites this year will have spread and will once again be a treat for visitors. Thank you for a delightful reminder.
