Today we took a short gallop down the Great North Road to Lotherton Hall. We recommend a visit to this Yorkshire country house for its comprehensive collection of Chinese ceramics, colourful Edwardian-taste rooms which combine lush with cosy, rare artist-designed furniture and the beauteous, sun-dappled paintings of Sir George Clausen.
We were greeted in style, held onto our hair and entered into the spirit of the latest exhibition - Native Americans of the Plains.

Love of Native American culture is a family tradition.
These child's mocassins and toy papoose are delightful

Unsure of how calm we felt after viewing the leggings adorned with human scalps we retreated to Lotherton's tiny chapel to regain our equilibrium.
