photoblog image Ickworth House 4/7

Ickworth House 4/7

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

 

Ickworth allows photography without flash usage and the lower shot here is looking up from the main entrance hall.

 

The upper image ties up with the lower one and was taken in the foyer area of the upper floor. 

 

I might add that the attendant up there was very helpful indeed, being a keen photographer himself apparently.

it is nice they allow photography, so many places wont let you now, getting worse really, nice shots
Brian Walbey: NT started allowing cameras, no flash, this year, but we went to one on Anglesey in September, see it here next year, where photos weren't allowed inside.

Fine stuff Brian but you were lucky to have been allowed to use your camera
Brian Walbey: This is one of the NT properties they now allow cameras in Chris but no flash.

great angles, both of them
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal.
Well done, Brian. Interesting shots, and I love those lights.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sheila.
Looks very well maintained. Couple of great images
Brian Walbey: I believe teams of volunteers look after these houses Martin.

Impressive but not very cosy.
Brian Walbey: I alweays think these big houses never do look cosy Chad.
these places are so grand inside, they have some fantastic art work smile
Brian Walbey: There are lots of beautiful paintings all over building Linda.
More and more NT properties seem to be allowing photography inside
Brian Walbey: They do indeed Bill but still no flash allowed.

I like the pillars and the lantens
Brian Walbey: This greets one as you walk throught the main doors, it is superb.

I see NT have relaxed their policy for photography. An impressive collection of paintings by the look of it.
Brian Walbey: There are some lovely paintings and decorations Alan, but no flash even though cameras are now allowed.
Very nice Brian. Makes you want to click on the images and see them bigger
Brian Walbey: That's one option missing on SC. Janet sadly.
Lovely shots Brian, I have to agree with Ray, one of your best.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Tim.
A nice interior also. The NT are touchy about photography even on their free public access places, if they think you have any commercial intent.
Brian Walbey: Thanks John. We went to Plas Newydd, Anglesey, in September. No cameras there as the family don't want any of there paintings photographed for fear of foreries being made. Mind you they have a big collection and exhibition of Whistlers so it is probably understandable.
