Channelling the Delavals

By mrswoolybill
Seaton Delaval Hall is fully open again, after the National Trust's biggest ever restoration project.
The Hall was designed by Sir John Vanbrugh (Blenheim, Castle Howard...) for the Delaval family, who had a reputation for playing practical jokes.
The restoration has kept their spirit alive. The replanted South East Garden has distorted mirror features hidden off the beaten track, to surprise visitors.
There will be more uploads...
Thanks for looking,

I thought it was a splice-and-join image, until reading your notes. Good tones, Moira.

Looks like it is from a film camera where something went wrong with the wind-on mechanism...
