Meanwhile...

Here's something I wrote about Strawberry Hill House for superior interior specialists Pooky.

  1. Excellent. I'm currently reading a lot of Pope. I believe his pied à terre was in the vicinity to Twickenham. He, of course, disliked Horace's father Robert a great deal. Is Pope's place still there and visitable do you know?

  2. Apparently the famous grotto is still there Guy, but only occasionally open to visitors - mostly during the Twickenham Festival, whatever that is...

  3. Thanks Nige. Just discovered that the house was demolished and there's a school there now. As you say, only the grotto left.
