Tales from the City-a great man’s chair


A view of a hero’s favourite spot in the garden. (C)susansheldonnolen

Sir Winston Churchill’s favourite spot, a chair by his beloved goldfish pond. A few moments away from a troubled world in Chartwell Kent, to start off the week.

About susan sheldon nolen

It’s rare to catch me without coffee, a form of camera, or my beloved wire fox terriers. I love the history, the art, and it’s a massive part of my life, as I either paint, write, or get interrupted by my dogs, reminding me of the real world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.

    Oh, my. What I wouldn’t give for a few hours to sit in that spot. 🙂

  2. Now that is a nice spot to sit and gather one’s thoughts!

  3. I may print that second photo, Susan, and stick it on my wall next to my desk. How peaceful.

  4. Coincidence! I have been thinking about that beautiful, graceful house all day. I’d love to return this week sometime. Clem’s hand is everywhere: comfort, combined with easy style. What a girl.

    No wonder he was a great man! One particular thing I like about the English is their gardens. And a chair like this in one would be heaven!

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
