Ham's Fantastic Staircase



As promised, here is a shot of the interior of Ham House, showing the fantastic carved staircase. Chuckeroon over at Richmond Daily Photo is one of the dedicated volunteers who help keep the building open and make it come alive with their enthusiasm. If you haven't ever visited a National Trust property, you may not realise just how a building like this acquires its legions. What surprised me at Ham House was the number of young volunteers as well as more advanced years.

National Trust properties have a wide variety of support, ranging from practically nothing to lots and lots. I recall that Castle Howard fell into the latter category. Some of the remoter Scottish ruins into the former.

«Louis» will check back for more on the Ham House. He knew of it, but has never visited it in his trips to London.
