photoblog image Thoresby Hall - Great Hall Windows

Thoresby Hall - Great Hall Windows

2009 Retrospective - I had a number of images I took last year that I would have liked to have posted on SC but time didn't allow.  For the time being I am posting a number of these, in no particular order, which I hope you will enjoy.

As a follow-up to yesterdays picture of the Great Hall at Thoresby Hall Hotel in Nottinghamshire this is a collage of two of the beautiful windows at the end of the hall.

I have posted some more images, some from SC and some not, over the weekend.  I f you want to take a look they are here

Such a lot of solid detail here Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris.
Nice one, Brian - any idea who K and F were?
Brian Walbey: Presumably members of the family who used to own the house Tom.
They are very elegant Brian. You captured them very nicely!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.
superb lighting really makes the windows come to life, like the border as well
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Derek.

Yes, beautiful glass windows, indeed -I would be interested in some details, too: D K = Duke of Kingston? I'm sure there is anybody who may know some more! Yes, I googled the website of this wonderful hotel now- to stay there for some days, to have a High Tea in this Great Hall... may be dreamy!
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely place to stay Philine, the main restaurant is in the main courtyard around which they have built walls to make it like eating outside inside if you get my meaning.
wow, some amazing windows. nice close shot.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Charles.

I read the motto of the Manvers family: "Repone pie te", translated as "Repose with pious confidence" -very appropriate for this place, isn't it? "...post praemia"
Lady Manvers, widow of the 6th Earl, lived there until her death in 1984.
Brian Walbey: There are some paintings of the family dotted about the building as one walks round.

I read: "Proelia post praemia "Post Proelia Praemia" would translate After the battles come the rewards. Not so appropriate today!
You have to admire the folk that make these..They are lovely.
Brian Walbey: They are indeed Ron, thanks.
The lighting was great to get a shot. It's not always easy. Great job!!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary. This is just part of two of the windows, there are some more as well.
Fabulous image Brian, such vibrant colours
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Pam.
