I have never been to Longleat, is it nice there? I always thing of buildings as majestic too, I absolutely adore those beautiful old buildings and love nothing more than going around them and imagining how life would have been in those days.

Its very lovely,probably on a par with Pike fish towers,maybe not though...I love it there.I will tell you another lovely place in Wiltshire to visit,and that place is Lacock..there is the most amazing abbey there,and when you enter it ,it makes you feel as though you can sense the presense of the monks who trod the stones many years ago...the village of Lacock has a lot to offer too,the buildings there are stunning,well worth a look if you ever get that way...

Anytime that you are in Wiltshire Gemini do drop in. The early morning sun rising over the gasworks is a truly awesome sight. The sound of boy racers rushing to their beds, their souped up Ford Escorts chuckling through their amplified exhausts is a sound to stir the blood. LOL.

I have been to Wiltshire many a time over the years, my Nan lives in Swindon. I remember some beautiful places around and about there that my grandparents would take me to visit. I even considered living around there at one time.

Years ago I managed an event at Longleat, and I have to agree that it is majestic. We had fireworks in the park afterwards, with amplified classical music that was timed to boom with the booms, and it was just incredible.

Ive been to the proms at Longleat house,and it was a brilliant evening,..I cant remember who was there the first time,but Robert hardy was there the second time and he did a few of Churchill speeches,he did them very well,the whole evening was great both times,and the firework display was very well organised.

I reckon the fireworks there were the best I've ever seen.

Hey Pikelet! Pleased to 'meet' you, and yes, I imagine I'm the Moo that Ruby has mentioned as I number her amoungst my bestest of myLot pals. I dread to think what she's said about me though! I'm really not exciting enough to warrant discussion, particularly when I'm without internet as is currently the case :-( Re the Longleat proms, well I don't remember any Churchill speeches although I was supposed to be working at the time so may have missed them. I imagine that a venue like Longleat hosts posh dos like these on a pretty regular basis though. Isn't that peculiar to think of though, that we could have been picnic buddies and never have known it ...

I think that a building can be majestic Ruby and Longleat certainly is. Here at P1kef1sh Towers we often hear the merry clink of glassware as the Majestic man brings yet another case of something that will make us squiffy very quickly.

I'm sure that it did. Perhaps a nip of brandy before turning in?

Maybe we could make a few sandwiches ,a packed lunch and head of into the hills Ruby,we sound like minded souls really,I too have a love of old buildings and architecture,its highly recommended,but maybe for the mature rather than the youngsters,I dont know if yo have ever been to Wilton house,near Salisbury,it is a very beautiful house,its situated in the village of Wilton ,where the famous woolen carpets are made.The house maye isnt wquite as grand as the stately home Longleat,but it still makes for a good day out if you want to look at architecture,oil paintings,and beautiful china,and you can end the day with a nice cream tea at the cafe there.I can relate to the word majestic,and it certainly applies to Longleat house.The whole area surrounding Longleat is very beautiful,the village of Horningsham is great,and the little tea rooms there ,the Bargate cottage,beside Shearwater lake,and the surriunding countryside.

Of course buildings are majestic and magnificent ,and its not until you get a good few years older that you tend to appreciate all of the beauty around you.When you are young you think that the beautiful things are clothes and cosmetics,music and fellows.lol,but as you get older you turn to the more interesting things in life.I find old buildings and castles very interesting,they always have a tale to tell,think of all those hundreds of people that lived and worked there centuries ago,and the tales that they would be able to tell.
