A few weeks ago the local town guide plopped through the letterbox. Truth be told, I usually have a flick through then drop it into the library next time I am in and leave it on one of the tables. This time the article about the Orangery caught my eye.
As it is a lovely day today. We planned to walk Alfie down and visit the Orangery located not too far from us, on the site of the Town Council premises.
Bitton House was originally called Westcliffe House and was bought in 1812 by Admiral Sir Edward Pellow, who after 1816 became Viscount Exmouth following a successful battle freeing slaves in Algiers. Two of the cannons from that battle were brought back and now reside in the grounds.
