01/02/2015 Being entertained by a favourite film on a cold Sunday afternoon when I feel like death. 'Northanger Abbey' the house in the background is actually Lismore Castle in Lismore, Co. Waterford Ireland. A beautiful village. The house was a favourite of John Betjamin. I think it might still be owned by the Duke of Devonshire.
