Tattershall Castle 5/5

Lord Curzon had undertaken restorations on it between 1911 and 1914. It remains today one of the three most important surviving brick castles of the mid-15th century. The ground floor was the Parlour and it was here that local tenants would come to pay their rent. Today, the Parlour is licensed for civil wedding ceremonies for up to 90 guests.

The brick work is superior, Brian!
Brian Walbey: For being so old it is very impressive.
I love the light coming through the windows, Brian! Nice comp!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth.
The history of this place, Brian! And to think it continues on into perpetuity. I love it.
Brian Walbey: It certainly has a history and appears to be about 785 years old, the USA surely hadn't even been discovered then I guess.

I can quite imagine weddings taking place in such a historic site
Brian Walbey: A good atmosphere I would think.
A simple design of banner/coat or whatever it's called Brian.
Brian Walbey: Banner I think Chad, and yes, a simple design.

What an undertaking to build a whole edifice in brick - and they are quite small ones, too
Brian Walbey: Taken together with the castle outbuildings and walls etc.this must have been quite a construction job for the time.

a fine symmetrical composition!
Brian Walbey: One can imagine the couples being married there standing in front of the centre walled section with the daylight flooding in from either side.

A place where men get the chop. First as local tenants and then as bridegrooms smile
Brian Walbey: Depends which way you look at it Louis, I got the chop 45 years ago and we are still together, having had our up and downs of course over that time.
It is lovely to see all the interior brick too.
Brian Walbey: The whole building is brick inside and outside.
An impressive wedding venue Brian
Brian Walbey: Beinf the NT it no doubt comes at a price!
excellent framing Brian....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter.
