When not at work

It is almost impossible to be involved in ecclesiastical law and not to have an interest in old buildings. When Caroline isn't finding new places to explore, she loves to get into the outdoors to enjoy the countryside or work in the garden, with the aim of ultimately being able to sit back with a glass of wine sampling the fruits of her labour.
