An Elizabethan Manor House in West Somerset with a fascinating history, built on the foundations of an earlier 13th century monastic 'rest house/sanctuary' and chapel for elderly monks from nearby Cleeve Abbey, about 2 miles away (see pictures by ephotozine member 'Mars' for pictures of the Abbey itself).
A fascinating place and environment.
Photo taken from Monk's Path, Old Cleeve, @ 300mm telephoto.

Camera:Canon EOS 450D

This is a beautiful building, have been lucky enough to look around parts of it. My Grandparents house was an early one, built to house the monks who built Cleeve Abbey. It had a chapel, hidden staircase, priest hole and a tunnel that ran quite a distance from the property. I think it was there that my interest in history started, an amazing place to spend my holidays as a child. Was also very haunted, several people reporting the same sightings. Saw a few things there myself, but would be a bit long to write down here.

Great capture.
I like the way you took this shot..the Elizabethan Manor House in the background with the trees surounding the house.
Great details and colours.
