National Trust Collection: Hughenden

June 28, 2014  •  Leave a Comment
Hughenden Manor, in Buckinghamshire, is the former country home of Benjamin D'Israeli, and is another convenient spot to meet up with my photographer friend. As the day was so beautiful, and we had a lot to catch up on, we did not venture in to the house on this occasion. But we enjoyed the formal gardens of the house and the walled garden next to the cafe.
 
We also took a walk along the well marked footpaths and soon spotted an interesting looking monument at the top of a hill. Not sure how it would take to get there we decided to give the climb a go. We made it to the top and discovered the monument is the D'Israeli Monument, commissioned by Benjamin's daughter-in-law, and the views from the monument were well worth the hike.
