This has some nice sharp, almost 3D qualities to it marra. I don't know whats going on Keith coz I know its film.

Remember to close the gate when you go back through.

Risking life and limb, I climbed on top of a haystack for this one, to try and avoid converging verticals. The building is impressive from the outside, but it is almost an empty shell, having been gutted by a fire in 1822. 60 years later the famous Newcastle architect, John Dobson, was hired to put a roof back on and stabilise the building.

The gate was stuck in that position, so I left it open.

I really like my latest camera acquisition because of its sharpness and rendering. £13 at a local Pawn Shop!

Thanks mate. Keith

So, I'm thinking you can't go inside then?

I like your latest acquisition

The inside is open to the public. It is mainly a big shell with stairs up to a remaining balcony. It still smells of smoke! The two wings are also open and undamaged. The owners used to live in the wings before selling to the National Trust a couple of years ago.
