Did you know that Wednesday December 3rd is the 2014 International Day of People with Disability? While some people may grumble about there being 'A Day' for everything they are a useful way of raising awareness and encouraging understanding of the groups that they represent.
The image at the top of this post was chosen firstly because it made me laugh: the world is not yet inclusive enough for disabled people to expect to be to get into a sixteenth century house in the same way that everyone else does. Signs like this usually direct people to an alternative entrance. Secondly the sign is a reminder of the aim of inclusive design; that one day everyone will be supported by their environment without the need for segregation according to ability.
Sutton House is well worth a visit. Unfortunately many parts of the interior involve steps and other obstacles. I wish I'd made a note of exactly how much can be seen without steps. From memory the entrance level with Tudor Oak linenfold panelling, cafe and courtyard are step-free. The cakes and coffee in the cafe are also recommended.
