Dear Sarah, this once grand manor house was built almost 200 years before America gained her independence - so it's not surprising that it is showing a bit of wear and tear. It was fashioned on Italianate deigns, and the facades still look grand. I hope that English Heritage, the keepers of the house, have enough monies to keep it looking as good as this for many more years.

Warm hugs from Norway, Amelia

Great camera you've got there, Amelia.

Great crisp colours and good resolution. Like

Congratulations! Wise choice. ;-))

Nice composition too. ;-)

I didn't hear your shout. When can I pick up my WeeBook?

I'm not sure that I like the camera yet Per - but I need to use it more and get used to it as well. It was in a sale, and almost half price, which makes me think that others don't like it either. I'll send you a text when you are up. ;-)

So sorry to bring the UK weather back to Norway.

Imponerande byggnad det måste ha varit en gång i tiden. Bra vinkel du valt att fota slottet i. Det är en ovanligt vacker ruin. LIKE!

Greetings, Annica

H Amelia,

It looks like it was majestic in its day. It looks like a bit of nice weather that day.

Greetings from a cold and very wet day Dublin Mick

Interesting site Amelia, and well photographed of course with some nice colour contrasts. The left part of the building actually still looks pretty good.

Cheers, Tomas
