Easter at Longleat

Only in England would Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs parade with Alexander Thynne, then Viscount Weymouth and now the 7th Marquess of Bath. But this was Easter at Longleat House in 1985, where the Thynne dynasty has resided since the fourteenth century. A combination of democracy and death duties has led to the house and grounds being opened to the public, and also to Doc, Grumpy, Sleepy, Bashful, Happy, Sneezy and Dopy. From my book, "Being English"
