Lovely shot, Brian.

The light seems a little harsh on my eyes...did you HDR it a bit?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray. A touch of Topaz although the light was very contrasty at that time.
Quite a place!!
Brian Walbey: Indeed Elizabeth, more to come in my series that kicks off 3 weeks today.
A family with 8 kids could live there quite comfortably, Brian, I'm sure. smile
Brian Walbey: It is a very large house Ginnie, lots more about it 3 weeks today when I do a short series.

Very typically English, Brian.

How old is the manor?
Brian Walbey: Yes very English and thatched as well. Find out more 3 weeks today when I do a short series Pauline.
Apple blossoms on one of the young trees.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed, this was May so by now those trees could well be bursting with fruit.
What a great manor, would love to see the inside
Brian Walbey: See out more 3 weeks today when I do a short series Chantal.

Looks like they can have a nice tea garden, if there were a bigger tree or two. Maybe the pergola, showing on the right, can fit that purpose. The house's roof seems to be of thatch, which has me wondering about thatchers in the UK. The third aspect is where this manor is situated - from this view, it is in an ordinary street (not a lane in the countryside) amongst what looks from here, to be common housing.
Brian Walbey: It is thatched and in the main street of the town Louis, and it has a fine garden. I'm doing a fuller set of pictures in a couple of weeks time of this historic building.
I wonder how old that is Brian.
Brian Walbey: Quite old Chad, more in a couple of weeks time.
It looks like it might be quite cosy Brian. Well supplied with chimney pots which is a good sign. Nice shot of it
Brian Walbey: It's sort of cosy although the inside still needs a lot of refurbishment, being run by a local charity they have to do what they can when money is available.
OK if you say so
Brian Walbey: There's a few more like this to come, I've got a lot of stuff to post and not much time recently, so I grabbed a single shot from each set and am posting a set of previews.
Hmmm ... You don't do short series, Brian ;-)
Brian Walbey: This series of previews is actually quite a long one Richard, showing something to look forward to in the Autumn for you all, I hope!
