Belton House - Part 3 4/7

The Great Staircase to the east of the Marble Hall is unusually placed at Belton, as in a house of this period one would expect to find the staircase in the hall. The stairs rise in three flights around the west, north, and east walls to the former Great Dining Room above the Marble Hall. Thus the staircase served as an important state procession link between the three principal reception rooms of the house.

 

I will be unable to view and comment on SC for a few days, I hope to catch up with you all in due course.

Wonderful wood work well captured
A very fine staircase!
This is a particularly fine staircase Brian....by the way I hope you got some good pictures of Tornado
Brian Walbey: Tornado was stationary in Minehead when I sent you a text being coaled up, partly hidden by some carriages. Then on Friday it was at Bishops Lyddyard tucked away almost out of site so I didn't get a really good shot and never saw it moving sadly apart from a main road quite a distance away one afternoon as we travelled back in our minibus.
oooh, I love that chandelier
Brian Walbey: The whole staircase area was magnificent.
