A ruinous state

By KingBee
Shot the other day with the X-T3/10-24 on its first outing for a good few weeks. Formerly known as Newmills, Amisfield Park is an 85-hectare estate lying to the north-east of Haddington. The landscape structure which survives today dates back to the mid-18th century when an existing layout was remodelled as the setting for the ‘new’ Palladian Amisfield House built for Francis Charteris, later the 7th Earl of Wemyss.

Much of the estate is now occupied by Haddington Golf Club which purchased the land from the local council in 1969. The main house was demolished in 1928 and while many architectural features on the estate have survived and are now statutorily listed, some are in a poor state of repair: these include the stable block, ice house, walled garden and gate piers. This image shows part of the only wall left standing from a structure that may have been a gatehouse near one of the estate's two main entrances.

And if Nature has its way, that too will soon be no longer...
