Chartwell, Kent, England
Can you tell I am counting the days until I arrive in the Mother Country? I came across this little gem from Britain's National Trust. Go to the website (click here) to download a free album of the sounds of houses. Sounds of walking along a pathway, the crunching of pea gravel (one of my favorite sounds as it always reminds me of being on holiday), the creaking of a staircase, a key unlocking a door, the ocean lapping on to the shore. All designed to reflect the various houses that are part of the National Trust.
Back to the album, here is the description from the National Trust webpage:
Eleven of our special places across England, Northern Ireland and Wales feature on the album, so we hope you'll enjoy listening to the sounds of these places - to hear them for real, come along for a visit - we're closer than you think."
