Belton House

Today we visited Belton House, which is really pretty.

There was a lovely piano there which I enjoyed playing, lots of people stopped to listen and came into the room to hear me!

They have a small chapel in the house with an organ on the balcony. Bertie the bat has taken roost so people aren’t allowed on the balcony at the moment, but the house manager took me to see it! It’s really small and packs up into itself, they talk about it being an Ikea organ and I can see why! It’s got a hand pump, but they’ve even tried a water pump on it in the past! These pictures aren’t mine, I couldn’t take any, but it shows how lovely it is and there is a website with information on it https://www.goetzegwynn.co.uk/organ/1826-thomas-elliot-organ-belton-house-near-grantham/
