Oxburgh Hall - Miscellaneous 5/7

Another shot from the roof at Oxburgh Hall looking at the top of the tower in the South West corner of the building. Once again, as with the inner courtyard I took quite a lot of photos but felt this, and yesterdays, were perhaps the most interesting.

This is a nice view out across the property Brian... that is a lot of lichen on the top of the tower or is most of that from the birds....petersmile
Brian Walbey: I think it is a mix of lichen and wear from the weather Peter.
The stones have some amazing texture and color!
Brian Walbey: They have presumably been there for a very long time open to the elements.
Superb capture with this focus point and DOF Brian! I like the textures.
Brian Walbey: Yes a good place to look out and down from.
Even the stones seem to mimic the rooflines, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Why didn't I notice that! Hope you both have a great weekend over the border.

This is such a great picture. Love the point of focus...
I see they come prepared with the lighting-rod.
What a grand view.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid, I'm not sure if that is a lightening rod or a cable for some purpose. Hope you both have a great weekend over the border.

Just look at the lichen on the stonework
Brian Walbey: Lovely isn't it.
Natural and man made go well together in this image..
Brian Walbey: Yes they do Jacquelyn.

A great lichen encrusted wall with a lovely view
Brian Walbey: Indeed it is, thanks Anne.
love all that stone
Brian Walbey: With all that lichen and weathering it must have been there a long while.
I feel like singing Up on the roof.

Brian Walbey: Kenny Lynch, there's a name that takes me back, I was 18 at that time and having a great time, with limited funds, with my mates, and young ladies of course smile
What a great viewpoint up there Brian, of the surrounding countryside. Nice shot
Brian Walbey: Yes it's the only NT place I've been to where the public is allowed up on part of the roof.

A good vantage point, Brian. Just right to get a vat of boiling oil going to repel invaders wink
Brian Walbey: I often think modern weaponry is awful but some of the things like boiling oil must have been terrible to be on the wrong end of.
Lovely lichen encrusted stones, interesting to see the pitched roof in red brick part with the castle effect walls.
