Northampton, 78 Derngate - Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1)

Back in June, 6 of us visited Northampton. Two reasons (1) to Photograph the Car Park (yes I know I am 'sad') and (2) to visit 78 Derngate. A Museum.

To quote from their website :- Click HERE
78 Derngate is the only house in England designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
It is now a multi award-winning visitor attraction offering an unforgettable day out in Northampton.
To Quote from Wikipedia :-

78 Derngate is a Grade II* listed Georgian house in the Cultural Quarter of Northampton, England, originally built in 1815. It is noted for its interior, which was extensively remodelled in 1916 and 1917 by noted architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh for businessman Wenman Joseph Bassett-Lowke as his first marital home. 
It was such a great house to visit. This is the first of two blogs from here. This blog looks at some of the beautiful patterns, textures etc from the house.

Well worth a visit
