Dudmaston Hall 1/7

Dudmaston Hall is a late 17th-century country mansion and an example of a traditional Shropshire country estate, in that it comprises the main hall, the landscaped gardens, parkland, managed woodlands, lakeside, farmland and the estate cottages, for example at Quatt, a model village designed by London architect John Birch in 1870 for the workers and tenants of the estate. This is the North East facing front of the house.

Lovely texture in the prick work, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Not a bad looking house is it.
That rustic feel, love it.

The complimentary colors really attract in this image. I also like the leading lines.

I like brick. Sometimes this design feels a bit institutional to me, though.
Brian Walbey: If it was stone rather than brick it wouldn't look quite so austere I guess.
Jolie couleur de la brique.
Brian Walbey: No doubt cheaper to sue than stone when it was built.

One of our local Nt properties Brian. I look forward to your take on it
Brian Walbey: No photography inside though, sadly, hence I have a lot of pictures of the beautiful grounds to show.

Nicely composed Brian, and a very agreeable building.

An architect designed this? Just straight lines horizontal and vertical. The building may have technical reasons for the attention of an architect; but the form design lacks imagination. Doesn't take away that it is an imposing building.
Brian Walbey: It has the features of a stone built stately home but in this part of England there isn't much in the way of hardstone but plenty of materials for making bricks, perhaps that is why it is a bit bland. Mind you the grounds are beautiful as you will see later in the week.
I worked in a psychiatric facility in the mid seventies that looked like this. It was imploded later. I will see if I can find a photo.
Brian Walbey: These sort of places have been taken over to be similar places from time to time or schoolsand offcies.
Centracare, the third place shows the building.
I'm taken by the number of chimney pots, Brian. There must be quite a few fireplaces in Dudmaston Hall.
Brian Walbey: These sort of places have lots of rooms including at attic level where the servants would have lived when not at work.
No doubt this was the formal side, and the owners used the garden view smile
Brian Walbey: The garden view on Tuesday Tom.

It looks very substantial.
Brian Walbey: I suspect it is Alan.
