BATEMAN'S: The National Trust DVD

JOHN CASSY & BARBARA GIBBON    Book Number: 82857    Product format: Unknown

The beautiful 17th century Jacobean house in East Sussex was Rudyard Kipling's family home from 1902 to 1936. The interior reflects the author's strong associations with the East and many of the oriental rugs and artefacts and most of the rooms are much as Kipling left them. The delightful grounds run down to the small river Dudwell with its watermill, and contains roses, wild flowers, fruit and herbs and is full of colour. The house itself is built of local sandstone, the tiles all baked from Wealden clay, and the internal structures from local Sussex oak. In 1939 Kipling's wife bequeathed the house to the National Trust as a memorial to her late husband and today the house is shown as it was in his lifetime, a lasting legacy to his extraordinary life and work. We can enjoy from the comfort of our armchairs in this nearly one hour long colour film on DVD.
