Stately Homes to visit in England 1950's
Street and country scenes around London on routes of London Busses and Greenline coaches to National Trust houses. Hemel Hempstead. Why not take the 408 bus from Leatherhead to Guildford and also visit Polesden Lacey the Regency and Edwardian mansion on the way at Gt. Bookham. North of Guildford is Sutton Place which was built as a home in the time of Henry VIII. Or a bus trip into the 'Garden of England', Kent, with its Oast houses and hop fields. Sevenoaks and its cattle market. Knole House, a rambling old place amid sylvan wonder. Penshurst House, not far from Tonbridge has one of the finest medieval halls in England. St. Johns Jerusalem House near the Thames dates from 1234. Now a change of scenery as we head out to the Chiltern Hills and High Wycombe. West Wycombe, the village, the park and the house. Finally we see a Jacobean hone, Hatfield House, one of Britain's best mansions. Single decker and double decker buses galore. Vehicles of yester-year are abundant. Era of the multi-barred telegraph poles. A nostalgic and most enjoyable film.
