Visit to Compton verney

This was all in the grounds of Compton verney. Inside things just got stranger.

There was a folk art intervention exhibition. The highlight of which was a draw between an egg cosy on the head of a pastercast, and Punch and Judy holding up Jesus as he leaves his mother behind. That said the giant wooden "Turk" from a ship checking himselfout in the mirror was pretty good too.

Also a display of embroidery by the royal navy. Yup apparently we've been lied to and embroidery was popular with sailors.
