The Wood Norton has played host to an array of fantastic and fascinating events, from extravagant parties to the filming of various Dr.Who episodes.

That is what our design nightmares are made of.  And the phantasm of day that is making us periodically break into a cold sweat, scream out loud and cry (and then repeat) is this little bundle of pixels by Becky Berry.

The flip side is that we get to comfort eat pastry, while nursing the bruised feelings of our inner child so it’s not all doom – its food and gloom.
