Bateman House

We’ve all seen and read Jungle Book and loved it. We’ve had our imaginations taken to new heights, with Mowgli, Baloo the bear and Shere Khan the tiger. It was during the making of Jungle Book, that Walt Disney passed away. It was the last film he produced and the first film to be released after his death.

The original book was written by Rudyard Kipling, who resided at Bateman House, Burwash in East Sussex. Now owned and maintained by the National Trust, it is an ideal place to visit.

What I love about the main house main is the stone windows. They are just perfect for Ludwig’s Monday Windows photography challenge.

Within the grounds of Bateman House and Gardens, is the Park Mill. Which is a working mill, powered by a water wheel. And is open from 10am-4pm daily. However, it is best to just check the National Trust Site to make sure it is open the day you want to visit.
