The Piano Player, Peckover House, Wisbech in Cambridgeshire.

Scroll down to content


After yesterdays explorations, today being Sunday, it was not so hectic, just two gardens, a jazz festival and a large fete.  This was after spending the morning gardening, way to hot to be digging, so we went of into Wisbech the capital of the Fens in North Cambridgeshire.

Wisbech is a Fenland town that the town planners are throwing money at and so they should, it has a famous Gregorian riverside street, North Brink, but I will deal with that in another post.  This post is about one of the buildings in this famous street, Peckover House, a beautiful house and gardens.  When you enter the library, there always seems to be someone playing the grand piano, it is a lovely idea, just listening to the music while looking at the books and photos of how the house and Wisbech have changed over the years.  After exploring the gardens we walked five minutes up the road to Elgoods Brewery, where there are the most beautiful gardens that belong to the Brewery, now they are for another post.

I changed the above photo to monochrome as I wanted it to be somehow timeless, I would have preferred Jane Austin, but the lady was a very good piano player.  One more for my occupation category, which is growing nicely, sort of got hooked on them.

  1. That’s a lovely idea, to bring rooms of stately homes to life! Yes, Jane Austen would have been a wonderful discovery! 🙂 The pic has such a period feel, with the tasselled table cover and the furnishings.

    1. Its a lovely house, the type that Jane would have felt at home in, I could quite easliy live there, not too big and the garden all nice and finished….oh well, I can dream 🙂
