Drax Hall

I lived at Drax Hall for 20 odd years when my father was manager there. Nice old house with very wide staircase and interesting old stuff in the attic. The mill wall was one of my favourite places---I took the steps to the top of the mill and studied there for school exams.

Living at Drax Hall

I feel truly blessed to have called this "home" until my marriage in April 1972. There were nine of us (seven children) filling this house with laughter, childhood fights, adventures and all the emotions that come with a big family. I can still recall sitting in the windows seats of the bedrooms on the first floor with the sash windows pushed high and the wind blowing through my hair; the lovely stripped wooden floors (they were only polished on the ground floor) and the lovely wide staircase like something made for Scarlet O'Hara. The large citrus orchard, the old windmill and extensive grounds provided lots of adventures. We invited friends to play tennis on Saturday afternoons. Also had my wedding reception here, all outdoors under the tamarind and mahogany trees. No fancy hotel required when you had this!
