Well we did have to pay for the privilege as they were proper conducted tours  :D  but yes they were excellent guides and let us wander around for ages taking photos.  >41<

Also they were very accommodating to Tony giving him permission to ride his motorbike down their drive when he was making his excellent videos of Follyfoot locations  8)

It must have been great to look around the actual locations!

I was not aware of this.  Are tours of the house by arrangement or are they a regular event where visitors turn up at certain times?

They were always by arrangement. I'm not sure if they still do those tours now, there isn't anything on their website which I thought there used to be, but it looks like a new website since I last looked.  >48<

Sure was Andy, some places are still pretty much the same as they were back in the 70's.   8)
