Mrs. Monk's Would-be Diary, should have been written by Mrs. Monk, since she is the "Writer" in the family.
However, since she is a writer only in the conceptual sense, I have undertaken to fill these pages on her behalf.
If not by her, these pages will certainly be about her, and other important matters of the day

Mrs Monk’s Would-Be Diary .........

Taxidermy & Vulgarity

 26 September 2010

Overheard as we walked about Audley House.

“Isn't it wonderful that we have an aristocracy, so we can enjoy all this?”

In fact the interior of the house is a dark ugly place full of dead stuffed animals; a tribute to taxidermy and vulgarity.  

English Heritage are responsible for Audley House and they promote it with the following description. “The stunning pastoral parkland was designed by 'Capability' Brown and includes a pretty lake, restructured from the river Cam and a 'natural' landscape style of large trees and vast grassy areas.”

However this vast grassy area was utilised as a car park when we made our visit.
