Hanbury Hall

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 27 July 2014 in Architecture and Portfolio.

A few weeks ago we took a trip up to Shropshire and surrounding counties to spend time looking at the sights. Hanbury Hall is a National Trust house in Worcestershire whose history goes back to 1701 when it was built by Thomas Vernon, a lawyer and whig MP for Worcester.

Canon EOS 60D 1/250 second F/11.0 ISO 100 18 mm


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.

Beautifully composed Doug! The gardens are gorgeous. What a beautiful building. It is so big. I can only imagine how many rooms are there. It is so hard to believe that it is as old as it is.
