photoblog image Kedleston Hall

Kedleston Hall

Having shown you the North front to the hall yesterday I think you will agree that the South front is amazing in design.

The South front of Kedleston Hall (1757–59) provides an example of Adam's exterior treatment. His theme of a triumphal arch as the exterior expression of the domed interior hall is the first use of this particular Roman form in domestic architecture.

Another link to find out more details of making visits to the hall and park are at http://www.derbyshireuk.net/kedleston_hall.html

I have posted a rather more twiddled version of this but you will have to wait for a few weeks to see it.

This is lovely Brian: it needs little twiddling
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, it has, I admit, been through Topaz. Wait till you see the repeat posting in a few weeks time!
This is impressive Brian, old Adam could do more than just knock out fireplaces
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, but he didn't have Topaz to help him with the colours smile

I'm going to have to delay my postings or else SCe'rs will be suffering with a Kedleston Hall overdose! Interesting to see this in the morning light; you get a very different feel for the place.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, sorry to have spoiled your plans, I finish on Sunday but will look forward to seeing your take on the same place.

Oh yes, amazing- we are in Italy! We have to go upstairs quite slowly while lifting a bit our long dresses! I'm feeling to live in the times of Jane Austen! One of her novels could have been filmed here!
Brian Walbey: This is a great staircase Philine and photographically there are so many different angles and selections to photograph. Thanks for your lovely comment.
Quite impressive Brian. Well done!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.
Grandeur springs to mind Brian. You sure get about. Good one.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ron. This is only about 30 minutes from us, it has taken us nearly 20 years to get there!

Was this used in a Jane Austen adaptation for TV or film by anychance? Looks remarkably familiar. Well captured. Great details.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Harv, I'm couldn't say about the Jane Austen thing though.

Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Tim.

Reminds me of Bath. Terrific capture of this impressive building
Brian Walbey: Thanks Aussie, I suspect it is the colour of the stone that makes it look a bit like Bath.
Great building.
Amazing architecture
Cheers
Rob
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Rob.
