This is the Tudor side of the Newark House, built around 1550 for Sir Nicholas Poyntz as a hunting lodge. The house was later expanded by the Clutterbuck family around 1790 and had various residents until it was given by Mrs Clutterbuck to the National Trust in 1949. It sits proudly at the top of the Cotswold Escarpment looking over the Ozleworth valley in Gloucestershire toward the Mendip Hills in Somerset and on a clear day has incredible views, unfortunately the day we visited the weather was not in our favour .
I took this as a HDR as I wanted to be sure I exposed for the peacock sitting up on the gate as well as for the house.

Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.
