Mother's Day visit to Burghley House

Burghley House in Stamford offered Mother's Day free bubbly, so whilst there, it seemed obligatory to look around the house and admire some of the amazing Italian frescos. 
All the time I studied A-levels at Stamford college, I didn't quite get around to visiting Burghley. 

The stone town of Stamford, Lincolnshire, where I studied A-levels in the early 1990s.

 Burghley House

The Hell Staircase fresco by Antonio Verrio was commissioned by the 5th Earl of Burghley
