I took the in-laws exploring on the weekend and we went to Audley End, one of Englands grandest stately homes.

It is a spectacular Jacobean mansion and we so enjoyed walking through the kitchens, the laundry, and the main house.
I couldn't take any pictures in the main house, but I suggest you look at their pictures on the English Heritage webpage if you like these kind of places.
There was some birds of prey demonstrations on the grounds, but we had enough with taking in the sights.
Talk about laundry room! And this is just half of it... But in those days it would take a week to put the various garments through the cleaning process, so I guess you needed some space...
I do like the looks of those neatly folded sheets...
You can walk through the kitchens and watch the staff in costumes working...
or were they real...?
Think this will be my spooky contribution to a Halloween inspired shot!
Despite the grey pictures we enjoyed 20 degrees and beautiful autumn colors.
A friend joined us for dinner and it seemed suitable to end the day watching Downton Abbey on the TV
