This building has that heavy look that you often see in northern counties Brian.
Brian Walbey: No doubt built from the local stone.

Wow - this looks delightful with those hills rising behind.

Nine years is a lot of pictures for us to look at!
Brian Walbey: This is just up the road from Dovedale, one of the most popular visitor spots in the area as you probably know.

J'aime beaucoup l'architecture du bâtiment. Le parc le met bien en valeur.
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely place with lots of walks in beautiful scenery and the only charge is for parking the car.

9 years is a very long time, Brian.
Brian Walbey: It's gone very quickly Lisl, I hope I can make a few years yet.

And nearly 3000 photos!
Brian Walbey: A lot more than 3,000 if the additional ones on all the collages are taken into account.
What a setting! Look at those lovely golden grass fans!
Brian Walbey: It is set in one of the most beautiful area of central England, we have been there quite a few times over the years we have lived in this part of the country.

Stunner!


I am not much more than 1 year ahead of you, Brian...you will have to increase your pace if you want to catch me! smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray. I caught you a long time ago smile Being a number-cruncher all my working life I can say that including all the additional photos on my collages I have actually shown 3,798 images on 2,990 posts!
This can't be far from Sheffield, yet I've never heard of it! I made my first post on 25th December, 2009 - so, a little while after you, Brian!
Brian Walbey: I'm surprised you haven't been to Ilam Tom, it is just down the road from Dovedale and is very popular, and of course it has a very fine tearoom smile
My first was August 2007!

Irlam Park looks very inviting
Brian Walbey: Ilam park is just a short drive further along the same road as Dovedale, it is NT but it is free to all apart from parking for non-members.

Nine years! Crikey! Good for you; so much pleasure for us, too. I've walked through the grounds of this place; is part of it a Youth Hostel?
Brian Walbey: That nine years has gone by very quickly as well. Yes part of the building is a Youth Hostel, part is the tearoom and the rest, whatever it is used for is closed to the public.
A very lovely image!!
Congrats on your anniversary!!!!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth, this is a really lovely place to visit.
