Simon Jenkins, Chairman of the National Trust, awarded Parham House 5 stars placing it in His Top Twenty of 'Englandís Thousand Best Homes' and describing it as a house of magic.

So our visit as a section was one of eager anticipation and we were not disappointed. The house truly was a very attractive building and very little of it has changed since the foundation stone was laid in 1577. The gardens were delightful with a number of members taking advantage of plants for sale in the garden shop. A bonus was the weather with slight rain starting to fall just as we were departing for home.

There was a good selection of club cars in attendance, one of which was Richard Ingham's 1953 R-Type Saloon (B315SP) that carried an unusual horse and jockey mascot alongside an RAC badge.
