Felbrigg Hall, Norfolk 2/5

 

This is a picture of the West aspect of Felbrigg Hall. The Felbrigg estate, originally home to the Felbrigg family, was long the home of members of the Wyndham family, since the first John Wyndham, acquired the estate from the Felbrigg family. Thomas Wyndham was a councilor to King Henry VIII. Later residents included John Wyndham (1558–1645), probably the builder of Felbrigg Hall. The last Wyndham of Felbrigg was William Wyndham who died in 1810.

Yes...builder might have got inspiration from the Village Fire-station, Brian.
Brian Walbey: This side does look similar doesn't it, the front which you will see tomorrow doesn't though.
It's a grand old house and you have framed it very well from this angle Brian....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Indeed it is peter, and tomorrow you will see the front is quite different to the side.
Oh yes ... I remember it well.
Brian Walbey: Then you will no doubt remember the completely different front Richard.
A contrast in architectural style here Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed bill, and the front is different to this side.

Quite a mixture of styles there Brian, as is often the case with stately homes.
Brian Walbey: Indeed it is Mike, and tomorrow you will see the front is quite different to the side.
Two different styles here Brian. Very nice perspective!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard. Indeed it is, and tomorrow you will see the front is quite different to the side.
majestic building
Brian Walbey: Indeed it is Chantal, and tomorrow you will see the front is quite different to the side.
Looks like they have taken the design of the house to the Orangery Brian.
Brian Walbey: Only at the side, tomorrow you will see the front is quite different to the side.
A fine looking building Brian, those stones must hold some stories! A good POV here smile
Brian Walbey: Yes I bet they can tell some stories, reading about the nobility I bet most of them should remain untold!

Great perspective in the edge of the lawn Brian, sets the house off a treat.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad, you picked up on me using that as a lead in, nobody else did, your top of the class today smile

Oh, the Lavender along the dry stone wall - a fine framing of this photo - and an impressive Hall -but no visitor? - or did you drive them all away in order to take a good photo? Haha!
Brian Walbey: The hall itself was closed on the day we went so most people were picnicking in the grounds, or going in the walled garden which I will show at a later date, hence I had all this to myself.
A fine looking house with a nice lavender border
Brian Walbey: Yes it is John and the front looks completely different to this side.
A very fine house - I can imagine the Wyndham's playing croquet on that lawn smile
Brian Walbey: Yes so can I Tom, the front is quite different to this side as you will see.

They go togethr OK, don't they? Your picture shows both styles well, Brian
Brian Walbey: They do Lisl but wait till you see the front on its own tomorrow.
Nice use of angles and lines to add extra interest to this fine looking building Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Fred, I thought the lavendar bed made a good lead in.

Didn't John Wyndham write "The Day of the Triffids"? This is fine composition with the gravel path leading me nice from the left hand corner. I like the mix of building signs.
Brian Walbey: I believe so Alan but definitely not this John Wyndham. The path and lavender mad a good lead in I thought.
Complete with Norfolk lavender, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Graeme, imported from Hunstanton?
