Kirby Hall is open all year and is reputedly stunning in the snow.....if we ever get any again.


And there is this one just down the road....

And this one also just down the road....
https://www.english-heritage.org.uk/visit/places/apethorpe-palace/?utm_source=Google%20Business&utm_campaign=Local%20Listings&utm_medium=Google%20Business%20Profiles&utm_content=apethorpe%20palace\

When they open again!!

The story goes that English heritage owned both Apethorpe and Kirby. But they were similar in size and former glory, so they sold Apethorpe on the condition the new owner ‘did it up’ and allowed public access a few times a year. It’s apparently a refurbished version of Kirby. Although it might be nice to visit, I like the ruins for photographic interest.




This one is also worth a trip...

Interesting story about the owner. He used to bedeck his huge Christmas tree in the hall with real diamonds and other gems. At the end of the festivities he allowed each lady guest to select one from the tree. No wonder it’s a ruin now. 😂

I find it very sad that so many of these places are closed due to Covid.  

If people are outside and physically distance then it is not at all dangerous.  Some of this is pure jobsworth/HSE/risk averseness.

Thanks for the additional urls so many of these grand old mansions are now ruins.  I did some photography for English Heritage back around 2000 when they were cataloguing all the listed assets in England.  I had a section of Hertfordshire where I had to go and 'take one defining image' of the listed object e.h. cottage, dovecote, grange, etc...  I cant believe they managed to finish the prohect as they insisted in using film!

While doing some research I have become aware of Jermyn's House, formerly known simply as the Hillier Arboretum.

The Gardens are located three miles North-East of the town of Romsey in Hampshire, founded by nurseryman Harold Hillier in June 1953 when he acquired Jermyn's House and its grounds.

It may be of interest to anyone in the area, perhaps Graham?  As an arboretum it should be entering a prime season for photography as I write this in October.

It's now on my list of places to visit and take photographs.

Robert dont forget our trip to Westonbirt Arboretum.  
I have been there before and the autumn colour there can be fantastic.  
These outdoor places are great for escaping to in the days of lockdown.  However many seem to be closed which is a real shame.


Down here in Cornwall there are a wonderful assortment of gardens and arboreta that are filled with many exotic plants. From Eden Project to Heligan, Lanhydrock, Glendurgan, or Trelissock they are all amazing.  There are many other smaller gardens that are dotted around.

Spent a day at Hilliers last year. A very nice and varied garden and estate. I presumed Jermyns House is the one in the centre used for teas and meeting rooms.

Agreed JK, my memory of Westonbirt is etched!

I spent a day a recently and previously at Muncaster castle while the autumn colours weren't quite as good as they get they are getting there. I guess the South will be a couple of weeks behind us, we are almost 'there' as colours go in Cumbria.

Yes Bob, I think you are right from what I have read.

The Duddon valley is lovely at this time of year.  If I get chance I will make the effort.

Another image from the same shoot. I also took many pixs of the huge set-up in London. All history now.

Nice white balance there Graham.
Whenever I did control rooms (less posh than these 😆) they were always a mixture incandescent and fluorescent strip lights with annoyingly different coloured ‘zones’ along the panels and walkways.
