Ilam Park 2/7

The Ilam estate in Derbyshire was owned from the 16th century, for over 250 years, by the Port family. It was sold to David Pike Watts in 1809. On his death in 1816, the old hall was inherited by his daughter who had married Jesse Russell. Russell commissioned James Trubshaw to build a new Hall to designs by John Shaw; the Hall, now a Grade II* listed building, was built between 1821 and 1826.

It is all very neat, Brian.
I'm afraid they look a bit industrial to me...

Seen in the perfect light too
The yew bushes, if that's what they are, looking slightly ridiculous.
Is this two houses or house and buildings?
Brian Walbey: I think the hall is the one on the left and the left hand one is the outbuildings originally.
All beautifully maintained Brian
