photoblog image Round My Way #3/5

Round My Way #3/5

Fenney Hill Windmill

 

Just above the small town of Shepshed is this windmill which is often photographed.  As you can see it has been turned into a very desirable residence standing right on the edge of the Charnwood Forest area and the new National Forest being developed across the Midlands as it does.

 

This is probably about a mile from where yesterdays image was taken at Charley.

I really like the twig filter here, Brian.
Brian Walbey: The obvious shot is straight down their drive Ray but that is also a bit obtrusive.
Very desirable indeed! Lovely!
Brian Walbey: Worth a good bit I suspect Elizabeth.

What a charmer, Brian. You know I love this!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, I knew you'd like it hence it being published on a Wednesday when I know you look in. I gather this property is worth a very great sum of money.

Yikes - just imagine living THERE!
Brian Walbey: And it has some lovely views over the surrounding countryside Chris.
Blimey Brian you are showing me fine bits of Leics that I never knew existed.
Brian Walbey: I hope you like them Richard, you must jump in your car and tour about in the Charnwood hills a bit, there are some lovely spots.
A beautiful image her Brian. At first I thought it was taken in Holland.
Brian Walbey: Definitely not Holland Frances, about two miles from my home.
I bet this cost a bob or two Brian!!
Brian Walbey: Local chat has it that it is indeed worth a lot of money Bill, but it stands in a lovely spot with excellent views all round.

I would love to go inside and have a look. Its a really good looking windmill smile
Brian Walbey: I suspect it would all be very swish Linda.
Not the usual run of the mill property Brian. Haha. Looks a fabulous place.
Brian Walbey: I suspect it is very swish inside Janet, it is certainly in a very nice position.

A very pleasant looking place to live Brian. From the thumbnail I had the impression of a man and a wheelbarrow, I wonder if my eyesight is failing smile
Brian Walbey: I often think the thumbnails are something else Les, this place is in a lovely spot at the top end of our little town.
What a great place to own. Nice shot Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks John, this is in a really nice spot with lovely views, up-market is the right word I think.

What glorious lighting. This view would be completely lost in the height of summer with the foliage on the trees. I bet it's a nightmare trying to furnish the rooms in the windmill!
Brian Walbey: I like this angle, most shots are taken pointing straight down the drive which I feel is a bit intrusive.

This looks a lovely scene Brian. I am sure you appreciate it greatly.
Brian Walbey: Yes everybody who lived round here likes to see the windmill.
Definitely a des res!
Brian Walbey: More than I could afford Tom.
Interesting shot, I love the way you've framed it with the tree.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sheila. The main shot is straight down the drive which I feel is a bit intrusive.
What an amazing place to live it looks to have been beautifully restored
Brian Walbey: Yes it is all very swish Martin and worth a fortune I suspect.
Excelent framing Brian....it is a very nice subject and it looks well cared for....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter. I suspect it is also worth a lot of money.
It has a good feel to it. Clear and bright. Lovely to look at also! Excellent capture! Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Sue.
