From Patricia Duke-Cox:
Mrs Anne Nicholson, a great niece of Grace Weigall of Petwood fame and two times grand-daughter of Sir John Blundell Maple of furniture fame, came to Woodhall Spa recently and stayed at the hotel with her husband.
They were met by a researcher from the Woodhall Spa Cottage Museum who has a great interest in the Petwood gardens and the architecture of the house. During the afternoon Mr and Mrs Nicholson were given a comprehensive tour of the grounds and a viewing of many of the photographs from the museum’s photographic archive. The historic background was of such interest to the couple that more information was imparted over a delicious evening meal at the hotel.
The following day the couple visited the Museum leaving a welcome donation to funds and the desire to exchange further knowledge.
