photoblog image Sudbury Hall Re-visited 4/5

Sudbury Hall Re-visited 4/5

Two weeks ago I showed you Sudbury Hall from the outside and also the church next to the house.  In October we returned and went inside the house.  This short series is a few of the shots I took during that visit and, being a National Trust property, they were all taken hand-held without flash as per the regulations.

 

Surprisingly the Dining Room is quite small but quite intimate.  The house seemed to have a lot of small rooms but few large ones except the one you will see tomorrow.

a bit distant feel to the cosyness
I like it when these houses have rooms that you could imagine actually living in
Brian Walbey: Yes and this is quite a nice room Bill.

I'm surprised by the modest size of the room Brian
Brian Walbey: Then you might be surprised again tomorrow at the Long Gallery Chris.
What a wonderful series Brian.
Thanks for sharing it!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
It is surprisingly small, I like the lowish angle used to take this one Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin.
It is great to take a little look around in this house through your lens, Brian! Beautiful room again!

Another comfortable room Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes I could enjoy luch in here I reckon.
I could have done with a table that size for our Christmas gathering, Brian. Lots of elbow room.

Another great image of the interior.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Beverly. We also needed a large table at Christmas.
Exactly like my own dining room smile
Brian Walbey: I'm sure you would like a dining room like thius Tom, I would.

Such elegance, Brian, alas from a period long gone. I can just imagine Master at one end of the table and his wife at the other; perhaps granny in one of the chairs.
Brian Walbey: And the servants serving a ginormous luncheon Alan smile
With a wood fire burning in the grate, and the candles alight on the table, this would be a very cosy place for a good dinner with good friends. I like it very much.
Brian Walbey: I feel just like you about this room, thanks Sheila.
I could feel quite comfy sitting at that dining table, although it's a fair bit wider than ours
Brian Walbey: Perhaps we should arrange an SC.lunch around this table Ellie, that would be quite an experience I should think.
