If you get to the area, a visit to Charlecote Park is a must! Charlecote and its 185 acres deer park has been home to the Lucy family since the 12th century. The original house, which overlooks the River Avon, was built by Sir Thomas Lucy in the 1550's, and Queen Elizabeth I stayed in the room that is now the drawing room. The house as seen today looks Elizabethan but much of it is largely Victorian. In 1823 George Hammond Lucy inherited the house and after removing the changes made by successive generations set about recreating the house in the original style. The general outline of the Elizabethan house remains.
Though the grounds and park were open to the public, the house itself was closed, not re-opening until 8th February - shame we were a week too early! Sad
V1 is a telephoto shot looking down the drive. The section in the middle with the clocktower is the gatehouse, and as you pass through the archway you are facing the house itself, seen in V2. Turning round through 180° you are looking back at the gatehouse (V3).

Three fine versions, Trev, and v2 is an excellent architectural illustration for a book.

How very beautiful. V1 for the hint of green tones in the masonry, it makes the architecture somehow organic, a part of the landscape, in harmony with its surroundings. And V2 for the fabulous reflections in the windows!
Never been there, I want to visit the place now...

A really beautiful building, sensitively restored. As a single image I prefer V1 but the detail shots are also first-rate.

Such formal gardens buildings, with wonderful brick work and embellishments - wonder if the clock in v1 is original or added later? Especially like the gatehouse in v3 - with the view of the people through the archway.

There's a kind of French formality and symmetry about these images, Trev, rather than the more informal style of the English.
Your iconic processing does them proud.

They're all great, Trev, but I find myself very drawn to the one of the gatehouse.

I've only been here once and it is well worth a visit.
A great st of images Trev - I wonder if it is worth you putting your photos together and uploading them to The photo locations section of the site - not sure if you have used that before but its a growing resource, and helpful in finding interesting places to visit from a photographic point of view SmileSmile
