Belton House - Part 2 1/5

Being a slightly more expansive view of the items included in Fridays posting, a much better appreciation can be had of the beautiful building that the Orangery still is after many years having been built in the 19th.Century.

 

I will be showing some of the contents of the Orangery for the rest of the week.

Church! Wot church, guv?
Brian Walbey: Lol. The one you are going to see more of in a few days time smile
Now that i realize that an Orangery is one of the classical greenhouses built in the past few centuries i have a different appreciation for its shape that i called boxy the other day...Duhhgrin....now i realize why the windows are lined up so closely together....thank you Brian..... i like it much more and i have learned something new todaygrin....petersmile
Brian Walbey: I seem to learn something new most days on SC Peter, another reason for enjoying the experience apart from the great photos and nice people. Many thanks.

I have always liked that word 'orangery,' Brian. This is a gorgeous place.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is a well kept building Ginnie and the rest of the week is pictures of what is growing inside, a different subject for me. (Sorry you couldn't get the link to work I sent you, I just know you will both enjoy those DVD's, Cranford was brilliant,we watched it all. Another one worth having is Lark Rise To Candleford, there were several series of that, similar in a way to Candleford, we made sure not to miss that one either.

You wouldn't have this & not grow oranges - would you?
Brian Walbey: No you wouldn't Chris, the oranges come up later in the week.

I would not want to be the window cleaner.
Brian Walbey: Well perhaps at £10.00 a pane Chad, it might be worth it then smile
this series is fine and crisp
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal.
They used the orangery at Hanbury Hall on Saturday to sell tea and cakes for the fete, and the orange and lemon trees were shoved outside!
Brian Walbey: That sounds a very good use of the Orangery, a bit like the one I showed from Somerleyton Hall last year.
That certainly is a very fine orangery, Brian.
Brian Walbey: It is indeed Tom, and very well looked after.
That gorgeous building has to be the king of all greenhouses, Brian. Sure puts the ordinary glass constructed ones to shame.
Brian Walbey: Just about all the stately homes had Orangeries in the heyday Beverly, it is good that some still exist in such a good condition. The rest of the week is devoted to showing what was growing inside.
Perfect conditions, a very nice property Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed, thanks John.

All fascinating, Brian. I like the flat-topped bushes!
Brian Walbey: Yes it is a really nice hedge Alan, isn't it.
A really lovely place Brian
Brian Walbey: It is Pamela, thanks.
Built with imagination and skill Brian, could we do this today I wonder.
Brian Walbey: Not to the same degree of artistry I shouldn't think Les, these days it would be all UPVC!
