  1. I've visited:- Boleskine House (1978) Peter Grant's mansion Horselunges Manor in Hellingley (2015) Jimmy's old mansion Plumpton Place (Featured in TSRTS) (2016) Bron yr Aur cottage (2017) Tenuous connection:- Lindisfarne Castle on Holy Island, which was once owned by Henry Hudson (Country Life founder), who also lived in Plumpton Place. I also chatted to John Bonham briefly in a pub near Kidderminster in 1978.
  2. The new Peter Grant book is excellent, with a few very rare photographs, he seemed to have a shit life towards the end, but the last couple of years he found contentment. An amazing man by all accounts.
  3. Jimmy's beautiful home in Sonning, Deanery Gardens and his former home Plumpton Place (Also featured in TSRTS) were both previously owned by Edward Hudson, the founder of "Country Life". Hudson also once owned Lindisfarne Castle on Holy Island, Northumberland.
  4. Featured in "The Song remains the same" Vintage article:- https://www.rostronandedwards.com/Shop/Country_Life_Magazine/6358
