10 things on the 10th - November

I don't think we've made enough of our National Trust membership this year and this got me thinking as to which properties we could visit next.

The kids both have passports and are collecting stamps for each property they visit and will get a certificate at the end but we need to find some places to visit a little further a field now as each stamp has to be from a different property.

So in no particular order I think we need to tick the following of our "have visited" list...

1. Gawthorpe Hall

2. Sizergh Castle and garden

3. Lyme Park 
(we have visited here often but not since Josh has got his passport so he needs a stamp!)

4. Little Moreton Hall

5. Shugborough

6. The Beatles childhood homes

7. The Hardmans' House

8. Fountains Abbey

And a couple for when we are down at my parents'...

9. Greys Court

10. Mottisfont

Not sure how long it will take us too get round this lot and we certainly need some crisp, dry Autumn days to do any at the moment (which are slightly lacking in the North West!) however at least we know which ones we need to get to now!

If you want to join in with 10 things on the 10th then hop over to Shimelle's blog for more info.

Thanks for stopping by :)

A fab 10 things - can definitely recommend Shugborough - we have moored at the bottom of the grounds many times on a narrowboat.

Some beautiful and interesting properties on your list. We seem to have the same few NT places, within easy travelling distance, that we visit time and again!
