Mompesson House

An 18th Century property, managed by the National Trust, located in the Cathedral close next to Salisbury Cathedral, and constructed for Thomas Mompesson MP. It was later occupied by the Townsend family, and Miss Barbara Townsend spent all of her 96 years there. It was also used in the film Sense and Sensibility.A modest property by the standards of some we have visited, but no less interesting or charming. Some beautiful collections of porcelain and glassware in particular, and a vibrant little garden at the rear. All the images were shot with the Olympus EM-5 and 12-40mm F/2.8.Once again, we thank the excellent guides for their generous time and information.
