Today we walked back into Gurnett, and took lunch at Sutton Hall. This is a former 17th century Manor House that has been converted into a restaurant/pub. It is also the one time family home of the Earls of Lucan. We kept our eyes open, but there was no sign of the missing Lord. The building has an abundance of large oak beams and heavy oak panelled walls.
As we write this, the wind is howling outside and we are in for a fairly stormy night. Tomorrow however is forecast to fine and dry. We will stay here till Monday by which time we will be in need of water.
