  1. Hi Gill,
    A good start and I will follow with interest. I have been meaning a visit to Towerhouse for quite some time but never quite worked out where they are or how you get into them!
    The picture of the Purple Emperor got me very excited indeed! Where was it taken, not locally was it? I’ve never had the pleasure and would love the opportunity to both see and photograph one…
    Best regards

  2. Thanks for the reply Gill,
    That’s in Wiltshire then? Is it known for Purple Emporer and did you go for this reason or did you just chance by it?
    If it’s a good site for them I’m tempted to go for a look (look for dog poo is usually a good starting point!!)

  3. I went especially to see them, it’s the closest site with a reasonable chance of a sighting. It’s worth looking at the Purple Empire website and reading the blog if you are thinking of going. You will find all sorts of useful information there and Matthew Oates (who writes in purple) is very entertaining. It’s worth following him on Twitter for up to date information, he will often reply to tweets.

  4. Thanks for the tip off Gill, I will take a look at the website. I do already follow Matthew so will pay closer attention to his posts, it’s just trying to find the time for all of this isn’t it? Working full time is a complete inconvenience when I have so many other more important things to do!! 🙂
