Hardwick Hall~ An Afternoons Walk

Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.

~Oscar Wilde ~

I thought for a change you could share a walk I took Thursday afternoon. It has been some years since we visited this place and to say its only a 20 minute drive away we were surprised at the changes and improvements made, as the National Trust has injected much into its upkeep for public viewing with the help of lottery funding. I will share a little of our English Heritage with you this morning. So I hope you all enjoy your walk with me into our Historic Places around Great Britain, 


Hardwick Hall  was created by the formidable Bess of Hardwick

File:Elizabeth Talbot, Countess of Shrewsbury from NPG.jpg

in the late 1500’s, She was said to be the richest woman in England after Queen Elizabeth I. Bess was married four times and she was also a gifted needlewoman who worked on some of the famous tapestries which hang and are preserved today.

Hardwick Hall is still a working Farm and around the grounds are some wonderful walks which take you down to the lower parklands where a series of small ponds in tiers are full of fish and wonderful water lilies.


  I took pictures of the view and of a wonderful Field in the distance which I managed to magnify with my camera full of poppies.


I always find that a walk clears the head, and when you get such  wonderful weather as this week has been after the terrible Summer of rain here in the UK, you have to make the most of your garden and free time to enjoy the countryside and fresh air.

The Hall itself is surrounded by a terrace row of Cottages, which house tenants and labourers  of Hardwick Hall.


It brought home once again the vast differences in the Rich and Wealthy of those bygone days as the Hall is lavishly styled with a great Hall and furnishings Many more images can be found here, as now the Hall is also used for Wedding Venues.

Below are more photos of my afternoon walk. I hope you enjoyed a little History Lesson too..

But out of all of these wonderful trappings of Human Riches, we still come with nothing and leave with only that which we have in our hearts..

While Bess left a legacy of Bricks and Mortar and furnishings. It still all past to the state, as it remained in her family until the 1956 when it was handed over to Her Majesty’s Treasury in Lieu of Estate Duty.. As the Wealthy Have a Huge  amount of Death Tax Duty to pay. Hardwick Hall was handed over to the Treasury to pay off this  Tax debt. And it was then handed over to the National Trust in 1959.

Many Dukes and Duchesses have nearly lost their stately homes to pay these extraordinary High Death Taxes, Chatsworth House another grand Stately home, a place close to my heart as I used to live only a few miles from it when growing up and spent much time walking in its grounds. This wonderful Stately Home  nearly fell foul to  death duty taxes also, but due to opening its doors to the public it has become a success story in its own right Thanks to the previous Duke and Duchesses who turned it around so they didn’t loose everything.

As a foot note here Hardwick Hall was used in the Filming of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt1 and Pt2, in the Scenes of Malfoy Manor. And Chatsworth house is the setting for that wonderful

 Film The Duchess with Keira Knightley fame as Georgina  Cavendish the Duchess of Devonshire.

Here are more of my photo’s Forgive the repetition of some, but somehow the thumbnails got added to the slide show.. Wishing you all a Sunny Relaxing Weekend. And to end with, here is another Great Quote from Red Cloud.


” I am poor and naked, but I am the chief of the nation. We do not want riches but we do want to train our children right. Riches would do us no good. We could not take them with us to the other world. We do not want riches. We want peace and love.”

Man is the Dream of the Dolphin

In every colour there’s the light.
In every stone sleeps a crystal.
Remember the Shaman, when he used to say:
"Man is the dream of the dolphin".

~ Enigma ~

Once upon a time, usually relates to a Fairy Story,

Well this once upon a time is all based upon Fact! Facts that may seem very much like Fantasy. But they are Facts that each of you can research. Facts that some scientists seem so hard to comprehend, its easier to ignored the story altogether.

Once upon a time in Africa lived a tribe who lived near Timbuktu, they were call the Dogons . Within this tribe lives a holy man whose only job it is, is to sit in front of a cave that goes way back into a mountain side. He sits guarding an Ancient Cave Paintings which are known to be over  700yrs old. The tribe feed and take care of this holy man, and when he dies another is chosen to take his place.

Many pieces of information is painted within this cave. once piece shows information showing Sirius, which is the brightest star in the sky, but the information in the cave also showed another star rotating around Sirius. The Dogon Tribe knew all about this smaller star saying it was very old and made out of the heaviest matter they also said that this rotating star around Sirius took 50 yrs to orbit around Sirius.

Now Astronomers only validated the existence of what is now called Sirius B in 1862, but only just over a couple of decades ago did scientists confirm other information. Science checked the rotation of the smaller star Sirius B around Sirius A and found to their amazement it was 50.1yrs. And yet how could a small primitive tribe in Africa  have known such detailed information..and that information  had be sitting in a cave  for over 700yrs?

But this tribe knew more, they also could tell about other planets in our solar system, and more than this they could tell scientists what these planets looked like when you viewed them from outer space. This is something Science has only recently learned as we have explored outer space..

So a team was sent out to this tribe to ask them how was it they knew these things, The Dogons told them of the Cave drawings, saying ‘the drawings tell us..’ These drawings depict what appear to be flying saucers landing upon the earth they then show a large hole being made in the earth and being filled with water. And jumping out of the ship into the water are what appear to look very Dolphin like. They told them, that these Dolphin look alike creatures started to communicate with them, giving them details of who they were and where they were from along with much other information.

The Scientists Listened, looked at each other and said “ No this cannot be right” – Because it didn’t fit within anything they knew..

There are Twelve different cultures from around the Mediterranean that speak of similar origins. And for those wishing to take the time to research and explore the many carvings upon the Pyramids, the symbols and transcripts are all there.

History is recorded by those taking time to write it down. Written History only began some 6,000 years ago. Different writers all have different perspectives and viewpoints. We all view events differently even in todays reporting of events.

And through research it is also documented that it wasn’t only the Dogons who knew about other planets. The Sumerians too knew all about various planets, their sizes, and what was on them and this was written on tablets 3,800BC. How did they know all of this? Well maybe that’s another Bed time story.

Dolphins, have always held that special connection to mankind, as we hear tales of them helping sailors lost, keeping sharks at bay as people find themselves in difficulties in the ocean.. And those who are in need of healing, finding their illness improve or disappear after they have swam with Dolphin.

Dolphins seam to have the ability to scan the human body with their sonar and send healing via sound to help break up the blockage causing the illness.. Here are some amazing Healing Stories

In my next post I am going to post one of my own trance communications given in 2007, which touched upon the Dolphins.. As I was asked recently my views on why so many of our Dolphin are beaching themselves.

So in this post I will pass on my own thoughts and those which I was given from the higher vibration of that realm of existence………..

Each of us, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.. I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together... Welcome to my Sanctuary of Peace and Love... May we each spread our Lights around our World....Sue Dreamwalker
