Somerleyton Gardens 1/5

Last week I showed the church at the Somerleyton estate in Suffolk and this week is a brief look round the extensive gardens surrounding the hall.

 

The gardens at Somerleyton are quite extensive but in the main they are trees and shrubs with just a few flowers beds as you will see.

 

The entrance into the garden is through a fine archway but I just couldn't get a shot of the whole thing without other people in it so I took it in parts and am presenting it like this so you get the general idea of what it is like.

Sort of a DIY kit tongue Nice idea Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed. Thanks Bill.
Nice assemblage, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.
Lovley idea Brian, can't wait to see the gardens. Have you any idea when this archway dates from?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tim. Both the hall and gardens were drastically redesigned in about 1843 so perhaps the gateway dates from then.
An intriguing looking place Brian

Oh, there is a flair of Italy -in architecture, carving, sun- light - a lovely collage of some beautiful details you captured by your camera! I recall some Italian influences in England -for Example in Bath, Stourhead Gardens ... - it may be the desire of warmth and southern flair in the Northern countries- also in Germany- whre often rain and coldness are predominant
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Philine.
This place looks very inviting, I love the old brick/stone work and those lovely urns smile
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely place Linda, I think you will be impressed with my outside shots of the house next week also.
