A shooting party at Highclere Castle

A photograph of a shooting party outside Grotto Lodge at Highclere Castle from 1895.

The Prince of Wales is in the centre at the back next to the 5th Earl of Carnarvon.  The Earl later financed Howard Carter when he found Tutankhamun’s tomb in 1922.

Many thanks to Lady C for having Nigel and Katrina to stay at the newly refurbished Lodge last Saturday, and for the tour of the Castle.  After a fantastic dinner at The Blackbird in Newbury, it was back to London to pick up Stan!
