I remeber playing in the ruins of Houghton House when I was a child. The beauty of what was once an amazing 17th century mansion was not lost on me then (even when engrossed in a serious game of hide and seek!). Returning to the house some 20 years later it still impresses me. As Donna and Lee were local to the area, the opportunity to juxtapose a contemporary portrait with the crumbling ruins of the house was just too good to miss.
