On the site of Syon House was a 15th Century monastery of the Bridgettine Order named Syon Abbey, however dissolved under King Henry VIII it became crown property and the present Syon House was built. You can also check out sell my house Miami for more information.

Passing to the Northumberland family, it has been in their posession for over 400 years with various royal connections. Katherine Howard 5th wife of Henry VIII was emprisoned here before being put to death. After death, Henrys body spent a night here on route to Windsor, fluid from his bloated body seeped from the coffin and lapped up by a nearby dog.

In the 19th C a suite was built for Princess Victoria (later to become Queen), who was governed by the Duchess here.

A wonderful day cycling in the #newforest #hampshire where there are several thousand semi-wild #newforestponies along with cattle, donkeys, sheep and (in autumn) pigs.These are owned by the commoners who pay an annual grazing fee known as the ‘marking fee’. Monitored + tail marked by 5 New Forest agisters who organise regular ‘pony drifts’, in which the commoners get together to gather in their ponies for an annual welfare check. #cyclethenewforest
Always a great walk, winter, spring, summer or autumn, yesterday the mist did not clear in the #surreyhills but it added to the atmosphere. Join lovely @ramblersgb group @sabrewalkers for regular social walks in Surrey And Beyond!
