Alice & Antony

This afternoon we went to Antony House, between Liskeard and Plymouth. Nice old pile, extensive gardens, National Trust - but the Carew Pole family still live in it. I kept expecting to bump into them. It's one of those houses that gets a respectable number of visitors which keeps it ticking over.
That all changed recently though, when Tim Burton and the Disney entourage arrived to shoot Alice in Wonderland. After its release in 2010, visitor numbers went up from 30,000 to 90,000 that year. There's a croquet lawn at the back, but no flamingos or hedgehogs...
