Baddesley Clinton 2/7

THE BACK & SOUTH-WEST SIDE

This collage of the back and South Western side of Baddesley Clinton shows how that part of the house is built with brick walls instead of stone ones like the rest of the building. The manor at Baddesley Clinton was probably begun in the 14th century, though there are no exact records to verify the date. It is indeed possible that the moat dates back to the 13th century. The house we see today was built in the 15th century, and has remained essentially unchanged since the 1630s. Much of what remains is the work of the Elizabethan, Henry Ferrers, who is responsible for the south wing and the beautifully decorated interiors;

Your montages are a delight Montage Maestro!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray.
A handsome building! I like the upper left shot!
Brian Walbey: We liked it, the contrast between the brick part and the stone part is quite photogenic, and of course those lovely chimneys.
Superb collages filled with brilliant colour two days in a row Brian... you did good....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Peter.

Stone or brick aspect, it all looks lovely Brian
Brian Walbey: The two types of building materials make it quite photogenic, and look at those lovely chimneys.

Brian Walbey: There are quite a few benches round and about, I'm fairly sure you would enjoy a visit here.

The de Ferrers came with the Norman conquest. "Ferrer" is Norman French and means "to bind with iron" or "to shoe a horse". Staunch Yorkists they were at Agincourt and Bosworth. Amazingly the family survived and Sir Henry died on December 28, 1500 in Baddesy Clinton.
Brian Walbey: That's interesting Mike because the Earl Ferers also have history at Staunton Harold house not far from me, you can read about them here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earl_Ferrers
At least one of the Classic Jeremy Brett television series of the Sherlock Holmes stories was shot here
Brian Walbey: Just the sort of place for him to solve the riddle of the body in the moat or somesuch.
Delightful images but I don't see any ducks.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary, I don't think there were any there that day, it was midsummer, not the best time for ducks I think.
well done again
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal.
How very English,Brian. Good montage.
Brian Walbey: Yes a fine old English house, thanks Frank.
i was trying to put my finger on what was it about the colour differences. thank you for sharing this, interesting images and an excellent post.
Brian Walbey: As far as I know the older parts of the hosue were built of stone and the newer parts of brick.
This is a fine looking house on a nice day.
Brian Walbey: Yes we were very lucky on that day John, it is well worth a visit.
The colours here brings out the architecture Brian! nicely captured!
Brian Walbey: Yes I like the architecture of this place.
Another excellent collage, Brian. Looking at the windows and comparing them in both structures, it appears that the walls of the stone part are noticeably thicker than the walls of the brick section of the manor house.

I believe the Sherlock Holmes episode that Bill is referring to is "The Musgrave Ritual.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Beverly. I guess the need for thick walls receded as times became slightly more peaceful.
This is quite a handsome building Brian!
Brian Walbey: I think so to Richard.

This side is gorgeous, Brian
Brian Walbey: It's those chimneys that do it for me Lisl.
A moated grange, eh?
Brian Walbey: Indeed Tom, perhaps it was needed at some time.
