photoblog image Rydal Hall 1/7

Rydal Hall 1/7

Built in the 16th Century, Rydal Hall near Ambleside was the home of the le Fleming family. The house has subsequently been much altered, including the addition of the Victorian south range shown here. In 1963 Rydal Hall became a conference centre and retreat owned by the Diocese of Carlisle.

 

Thanks to everybody who commented on my Lea Gardens pictures last week while we were away in North Wales, I have put all of those pictures, plus some additonal shots, in an audio/visual now on YouTube, I will include that on SC some time later this year.

C'est une très jolie vue de ce bâtiment.
Brian Walbey: Fine looking building isn't it.
Nicely framed shot, Brian! A very stately manor!
Brian Walbey: The symmetry of the garden helped with this.
Even the gardens are symmetrical, I see, Brian! Welcome back.
Brian Walbey: Indeed they are Ginnie. Nice to be back especially with nice weather, for several days the weather was abysmal in North Wales!!

A pleasing looking building indeed
Brian Walbey: It is and in a fine position looing out over Rydal Water.
A handsome building that reminds me a bit of Shugborough
Brian Walbey: It's that round bit that makes it look a bit like Shugborough.

Welcome back, Brian. Rydal Hall pictures will be very welcome
Brian Walbey: It is a fine place to visit although the house is no longer open to the general public.

Perfect balance in the classical building style.
Brian Walbey: Both the hosue and the garden have this nice symmetry.

Welcome back, Brian. I hope you had a good time away and this looks wonderful, what an entrance.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid. We had a good time but the weather was abysmal until Wednesday, indeed it rained all day without stopping on the Sunday and then it was dull until Thursday, we even drove back from a day out on Monday afternoon in fog!

The deacons must be rich, with this property in their asset register. Maybe the maintenance is a balancing factor.
Brian Walbey: The Church of England is one of the richest organisations in the country and own many properties apart from religious buildings.

It looks a lovely place - somewhere to put on my places to go to list!
Brian Walbey: It is a nice place Anne, the house isn't open but there are some nice walks in the grounds and a good tearoom.
i like your framing and composition of Rydal Hall and some of its gardens Brian....petersmile
Brian Walbey: I think it must have been designed for photographers smile

Ah.. now I know this.. or rather the old school team round the back smile You did well to get this without other people in the shot.
Brian Walbey: Fortunately there wasn't that many people there that day.

a beautiful approach which you have presented flawlessly, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ayush, I think it must have been designed for photographers smile
A grand place, Brian.
Brian Walbey: It is a nice place Frank, the house isn't open but there are some nice walks in the grounds and a good tearoom.
I imagine there were some grand parties thrown here when it was privately owned, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I think that goes for most of our large houses Beverly.
