Cloak-and-Dagger in a Jacobean Manor

Ed and I have just returned from a top-secret mission to deepest Dorset. A portrait of Ed is to be used as a prop in a forthcoming Hollywood movie and the backdrop for the painting is the magnificent Jacobean Hanford School. In term-time it's teeming with 120 girls between the ages of 7 and 13 but because it's the summer holidays we were free to wander through the empty corridors, spook ourselves in the deserted dormitories and eat our sandwiches in the splendour of the vast refectory.    
A souvenir of our visit - a bunch of crazy dahlias bought from a roadside table.
