O Best Beloved

One of our Best Beloveds

has a dissertation to complete

on Rudyard Kipling,

so this trip to his home,

Bateman's at Burwash in East Sussex

seemed entirely useful

especially as it was a beautiful day.

He built this pond for his children to swim in,
 out of the £7,700 proceeds of the Nobel Prize.
There were newts in it.

This window was in the working mill.

  1. I saw your title for this post, and my immediate thought was..."Oh, please let it be something about Rudyard Kipling and Just So Stories!!"

    We love these stories and the mind behind them. What a beautiful journey you had...thank you for sharing it!!
