photoblog image Sudbury Hall 3/6

Sudbury Hall 3/6

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.

 

These are two of the towers above the rooftops at Sudbury Hall. The one on the left is directly above the main house as you can see in yesterdays picture, and the right hand one is over the stable block.

You know me and towers, Brian. I love all kinds and these are two beauties. Not far from Tracy, I see!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie. Tracy is about 30 minutes from here and we are about the same in the opposite direction. Hopefully we will meet Bill and Angie there next year for lunch if he goes here as he intends to. I am showing the lovely little church next door tomorrow and Friday, but then you would guess that anyway smile

Interesting comparisons Brian. The left hand one could be a little room or viewing area. The other is probably a vent
Brian Walbey: The left hand one in the house and the right hand one is over the stable block Chris.

this is post card material
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal.
I never spotted this detail on previous visits. It's too easy to miss features like these. A couple of great images Brian
Brian Walbey: Usually it's me who misses things Martin. Thanks for your comment.
Lovely details, Brian. (:o)

Really enjoyed looking at the Camera Club website, btw. A very pleasant interlude in an otherwise cr@p week. (:o)
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rosalyn. I'm glad the website eased your sufferings, whatever their nature.
Nice bit of decoration!
Brian Walbey: Topping it off nicely Tom.

Roof nipples I see.
Brian Walbey: I'm can't possibly repeat what Ray said about the golden ball on the top yesterday Chad.
Love your presentation of these two towers.
Is that a rooster atop the weather vane on the stable block tower, Brian?
Brian Walbey: Yes it is a rooster Beverly, thanks for your comment.

Fine work here, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray.
I'm quite partian to towers, some very nice examples here.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed, thanks Sheila.
oopes...partian = partial
Brian Walbey: Senior moment slip of the finger Sheila smile
Fine presentation Brian
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Bill.
very good, not sure what use they had if not only to show wealth maybe
Brian Walbey: Well I imagine the one on the house was for ostentatious purposes Derek.
One worth visiting Brian, I have not made enough use of either my National Trust or English Heritage memberships this year.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is a good place John although there doesn't appear to be much in the way of gardens or parkland to stroll in.

An interesting difference, Brian. I would have thought that they would be similar styles.
Brian Walbey: The one on the left is on the house Alan and the right hand one is on the stables, more for letting air in when the doors and windows are shut I suspect.
