And it might be worth noting that some National Trust properties are now allowing you to take photographs inside the houses as long as you don't use flash - apparently they are leaving the individual properties to decide whether they will start allowing photography inside so this will not apply to all properties.

Thank's Jenni.

What is with the NT and flash photography, is it something to do with the light from the flash fading pictures and the like?

It is concerns over light damage to fabrics as well as paintings. also some of the security systems may not like flash. Plus it can spoil the atmosphere

I like a cynic!

A litle off topic maybe but in days of old, my dad ( crook he was) used to fill his car with petrol whilst someone in the car held the mike key on A CB radio (on a certain frequency) and it would stop the petrol meter counting up, so free petrol!
Apparantly his happened with the old analogue mobile phones too which is why they banned their use. It was NEVER anything to do with safety.

Also, Patient-line, the in hospital, mega expensive telephone system was created and is still owned by 2 ex-NHS directors; hence the ban on mobiles in hospitals! There has never been a single case anywhere of mobiles affecting ECG's or any other hospital equipment. They now allow mobile use in hospitals but Patientline managed to get them to sign up to a 15 year contract before they did!

Call me a cynic!

Rained all day down my way so I did not bother taking advantage of the offer.

In fact I have watched, on tv, two rugby matches this afternoon and France v England kicks off in 20 minutes.
