Dudmaston Hall 2/7

The Dudmaston estate has been in the Wolryche family or the barely related Wolryche-Whitmore family since 1403, when William Wolryche of nearby Much Wenlock acquired it by marriage to the heiress of the former owners, Margaret de Dudmaston. It is likely that the medieval house was replaced by a structure on the site of the present building in the 16th century. This is the South West facing rear of the house.

I think those steps might have become redundant, Brian.
Brian Walbey: STill in use but they could do with a spruce up.
Very nice POV!
Brian Walbey: THanks Elizabeth.
wow, amazing history. Well before this place (Perth) even existed (Apart from its indigenous inhabitants, that barely register on anyones radar here)
Brian Walbey: Our American friends often make similar comments to yours re us having history from all that time back. I sometimes get the impression from the media native Australians are not considered all that well just like the native Americans, all very sad.

The house looks almost red with embarrassment Brian. I wonder what secrets it holds.
Brian Walbey: Plenty of secrets no doubt.
Wonderful mellow brickwork Brian
Brian Walbey: Very council house colour isn't it smile

It seems that steps like this are a feature of many grand houses. Here, they provide a good lead in the view beyond.
Brian Walbey: Yes they are, on Thursday you will see where they lead down to.
The brick is unusually red. This too reminds me of a school or hospital.
Brian Walbey: It certainly looks a bit like a hospital.
That's certainly a red, red brick!
Brian Walbey: Redder than red Tom.
