Night at Mottisfont Estate


As part of my residency, I was invited to stay overnight on my own in the atmospheric house - tucked away in the upper part of the house night fell so densely dark there was not a light in the surrounding estate with which to get my bearings. Locked in to the upper part of the house, the sounds of water in the pipes was my only accompaniment, one land line in another room of the house and no mobile reception - an elementally scary but wonderful experience!
