WI Visit Tabley
Lower Withington WI enjoyed an evening visit to Tabley House in Knutsford. Earlier in the year they were given a talk by Donald Mcleod about the history of Tabley and everyone enjoyed it so much it was decided that this would be the venue for the annual evening visit to somewhere local.
The house has a long and fascinating history and although just on the outskirts of Knutsford and bounded by busy roads there is still a feeling of what it was like in days gone by. They were taken round the house and told about the furniture, artefacts and art that are still in the house and in many cases were made specially for Tabley. Although part of the house is a retirement home this does not impinge on the museum part which is on the first floor of the building. There were a lot of things to look at and its likely that everyone will be going back to have another look as the house is open to the public. After the talk, the WI had tea and cakes in the tearoom which was in itself a beautiful room.
The next meeting on 24th. September is our Garden Meeting when Colin Parry will give a talk Evil to Good.
