Ickworth House 2/7

On the way home from our Suffolk holiday we called in at Ickworth House, a National Trust property just outside Bury St.Edmunds.

 

A view of the house taken from the rear garden in drizzly rain.  The Rotunda can really be seen to good effect from this angle.

If they built a few more floors on it, then pushed it over a bit, then it might be a bit famous...heh!

A cracking viewpoint, Brian; the symmetry works well. Here's my take on a very similar scene: http://www.thestudio-online.co.uk/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-10150

Its a very grand house and would look good in any season, lovely capture Brian smile

I am looking for the track to drive up to it..perhaps there's another way in Brian..The building is very impressive.
Brian Walbey: It is impressive Ron, it does look a bit like a track doesn't it, I don't think NT would be too pleased to see a vehicle on it.
If the grounds at Ickworth House are any indication, Brian, the National Trust does a bang up job of maintaining these properties.
Brian Walbey: They do indeed Beverly all over the country.
Looks so interesting,I now have it on my must visit list
Brian Walbey: And make sure you go inside as well Martin, it is very interesting.
Looks really good from this vantage point Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet.
