Visit to The Vyne, a Tudor mansion near Basingstoke, Tuesday 10th June, 2008.

Just over 50 members enjoyed an interesting and enjoyable visit to this superb Tudor ( with subsequent alterations and additions as always) property, which had been in the Chute family for nearly 300 years before being passed to the National Trust.

We had the house to ourselves and were shown around in small groups by excellent guides. Highlights included original tudor wood panelling, rare dutch tiles, a collection of murano glass bowls,a unique summerhouse, and a collection of water colours painted in Victorian times... and lots, lots more!

It was a perfect summer day which added enormously to the overall success of the visit.

Some couldn't miss a shopping opportunity


Hard hats were needed to brave the dangers of the summerhouse


A quiet moment by the lake


Some took the easy option!


Where the .... are we?
