Thanks to everyone who took part in this quiz. I always learn something new when the "super brains" of my visitors get working on my questions.
I am keeping tally of the score and there will be only eight more monthly questions in this quiz marathon so don't be shy you can still enter in the next few months and have a chance of winning. The main contenders at present come from Australia, Denmark, Scotland, Wales and the USA.

Who and what were connected  with:

1) Kelmscott Manor- William Morris and textiles or the pre-Raphaelite painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti and poetry.

2) Greenway- Agatha Christie and crime fiction.

3) Hughenden Manor- Benjamin Disraeli: politics and novels.

4) Lacock Abbey- William Fox Talbot and early photography.

Thanks for all the fascinating extra information I got about Ela, Countess of Salisbury, and the Dissolution of the Monasteries, plus the film buffs who told me Harry Potter and The Other Boleyn Girl were filmed at Lacock Abbey.

I shall have to make the questions more difficult.

Not to mention one of the recent Jane Austen movies also filmed at Lacock Abbey.

Your making your quizzes more difficult would be like the guardian of hell turning up the thermostat a few degrees.
