Dudmaston Hall 6/7

There is a large number of stables surrounding a courtyard at Dudmaston Hall, this is just one corner of it. I like the tower and clock above the entrance from the front of the hall into the courtyard but as you can see the sky didn’t look too healthy at that moment and we quickly retired to the second-hand bookshop while the storm passed over.

cool spot. Love it.
Brian Walbey: They have put this stable courtyard to good use, including stall selling plants. Fortunately we were on a coach outing which made it awkward for my wife to buy some plants, it's a rare occasion when she doesn't smile

Did the Archers wain arrows down on you from the battlements, Brian?
Brian Walbey: No they didn't Ray smile and as we were on a coach outing Maureen couldn't buy any plants to bring home either!

Nice to see these places put to a new use isn't it
Brian Walbey: It's a really nice stable courtyard with quite a lot to look at.
What a nice courtyard, a shame there are no horses still.
Brian Walbey: They have all sorts of other things in the courtyard including a lot of plants, as we were on a coach Maureen deferred from buying any.

a very nice looking corner!

Looks like a very interesting place. Love the soft colours.
Brian Walbey: The whole place is worth a visit, the parkland is very well laid out and the house, inside, is interesting without too much flambouyant furniture and paintings etc.
I bet Maureen like having a look at the plants.
Brian Walbey: She looked but didn't buy, we were on a coach trip rather than being in our own car.

Looks to be a fascinating place to poke around in. The Hall has lovely brickwork.
Brian Walbey: Yes quite a nice place Alan, not too much of the 'over the top' furniture and paintings etc.
That sky does look a bit Shaw like Brian, the national trust second hand books are usually overpriced and tatty. Now our Lions book sale is quality at bargain prices. You should organise a coach trip grin
Brian Walbey: Shortly after this the eahvans opened for a while, so this was the real tning. I agree about their books, I haven't found any S/H. ones as yet. Currently I am trying to get all the DCI Banks novels by Peter Robinson to read, I've tried most of the charity shops in Lougborough and places like The Works but 8 in the series still alude me.
I really love this "little" corner! This is wonderful!
Brian Walbey: Yes it was quite nice in this area and as you cans ee there are some plant stalls but Maureen decided not to buy anything as we were on a coach trip and not in our own car.
