Drogo’s tower – top notch

A familiar view, it wasn’t that long ago Knole’s roof looked quite similar. Our external building works are nearing completion after almost two years!

Been to Castle Drogo today – fantastic trip up the new Tower to review the repair works – absolutely brilliant – a must do thing! This along with the visit to the garden made a great afternoon’s entertainment. During the winter Tower trips only occur at the weekend – check here for full opening time details. Here are a few pictures from my visit.
