photoblog image Dudmaston Hall 3/7

Dudmaston Hall 3/7

The Southwest facing rear of the house includes the large wing in the foreground of this picture which is the outside face of the stables and courtyard. I will show some of the inside of that area on Saturdays posting. I should point out that the house is now owned by the National Trust who lease part of it to the family who’s house it was to live in and therefore with some of their personal possessions on show in some of the rooms photography in the house is not allowed. I confused the guide in one room when I asked her if I could take pictures from inside the room through the window to the garden outside, she reluctantly said yes but they didn’t come out very well as I picked up reflections in the glass!

J'aime la vigne vierge qui recouvre les murs.

This is a fine image, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray.
I love all that greenery against the brick!
Reflections are always difficult!
Brian Walbey: I like the way the greenery frames the windows.
aha, now we see what you were talking about. Way cool!!

Big, bigger - depending on the side you take the picture from - or so it seems.
Brian Walbey: It is difficult to include that wing from the other side.
I think I have taken the house from this angle Brian. It is a good viewpoint
Brian Walbey: I think this wing looks better than the main house.

Very pleasing and I love those chimneys.
Brian Walbey: Shame they don't make chimneys like that these days.
The vines have softened up the building quite nicely.
Brian Walbey: I like the way the windows peek out through them.
I can picture Dudmaston Hall being used as a setting in a period piece film, Brian.
Brian Walbey: It's very much that sort of place.
When I look at these places I'm so happy to just have an apartment to maintain....smile
Brian Walbey: I know what you mean Frank, just imagine inheriting somewhere like Chatsworth when all you want is a nice little house with a small garden and an ensuite smile

This wing looks more me; it's more homely. I have thought about offering my own home to the National Trust as a sort of museum of have "normal" people lived in the 1970s. I don't fancy tidying up every morning, though. before opening time.
Brian Walbey: Somehow I don't think the nT would be interested in my house, it would take all of two minutes to look round smile
