photoblog image Sudbury Hall 1/6

Sudbury Hall 1/6

Sudbury Hall is a National Trust property near Uttoxeter just off the A50 between Derby and Stoke-on-Trent.  It is well worth a visit as it also houses the Museum of Childhood, an interesting collection of toys, games and activities from over the centuries.

 

This is the front of the house facing on to the main road with the car park on the other side of the road, not too far to walk.

 

Details of how to get to Sudbury Hall can be found here

 

If you have a few minutes to spare one of my camera club colleagues has been upgrading the Club's website which you can find here  The gallery includes all the winning images from our competitions during 2010.  I managed 4th.in the Open Prints Class, 2nd.= in the Themed Prints Class and 3rd.in the overall Club Championship this year, not too bad I feel. I did win the overall Championship in 2004 but haven't managed to repeat that since.  There are some excellent images in there.

An imposing facade. Congratulations on your acheivements.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Graeme.
The only part of the scene that has changed since I was last there is the cars Brian, the place still looks good.

I like the idea of a Flickr group for the club, one way of bringing things together. Well done on your selection.
Brian Walbey: I was a bit annoyed about the cars Les but it is a disabled parking area I believe. Glad you enjoyed our website.

You find the most wonderful places to visit, Brian, as though they were a dime a dozen. Congratulations on the wins in your camera club. Well-deserved, I might add!
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Ginnie. This house is about 20-30 minutes at the most from Tracy's home.
A lovely place to visit. Ironically isn't there one of HM's prisons almost next door. ;-)
Brian Walbey: I managed to avoid the prison Richard, didn't fancy that at allsmile

Magnificent, well done with the club also Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tony.
You did well Brian, the overall standard is high
Brian Walbey: Iwas actually surprised when the results were given out at our annual dinner last week, I didn't feel I'd done very well this year.
What a grand building - beautifully captured, Brian. I will enjoy a visit to your camera club site with my morning coffee! (:o)
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rosalyn. I hope you managed the time to enjoy my clubs gallery.
What would we do without this history Brian..A really interesting place for the camera.
Brian Walbey: A great place Ron indeed.
A fine building and view.

Ancient kids' games...that sounds great.
Brian Walbey: The Museum of Childhood is really great Ray, old fashioned Victorian classroom complete with teacher and all that sort of stuff, our Grandson really enjoyed that bit.
You are so fortunate to have these wonderful National Trust properties to visit and photograph, Brian. Very nice shot of the front facade. Thanks for including the link to your camera club's site and congratulations on your wins.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Beverly.
Fine image, Brian. Sounds as though you've done well over the years!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.
Know this one well, great for the kids
Brian Walbey: It is indeed Martin, our grandson enjoyed the classroom lesson.

Congratulations on your achievements Brian - looks like you had some stiff competition too. An interesting building, though I have to say I normally find the gardens more to my taste than the interiors of these houses.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ingrid. Sadly this place hasn't got much in the way of gardens.

You always manage to bring us some photos of the NT properties and this is no exception.

Well done on camera club successes, too; knowing how to appeal to the fickle judges is a small, but important, part!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan.
nice view of the house, congrats on the awards as well
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Derek.
