Lyme Hall

By thebopper
Warm spring day at Lyme Hall.

On the edge of the Peak District, nestling within sweeping moorland, Lyme Park is a magnificent estate. Its wild remoteness and powerful beauty contrast with one of the most famous country-house images in England the backdrop to where Darcy meets Elizabeth in Pride and Prejudice. Discover a colourful family history from rescuing the Black Prince, sailing into exile with the Duke of Windsor, to the writing of the hit series Upstairs Downstairs. Enjoy hearing visitors play the piano as you discover impressive tapestries, clocks and beautifully furnished rooms, or escape to the park and feel miles from anywhere. Note: owned and managed by the National Trust but partly financed by Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council.

Tech details: 34mm, 1/400sec, f5.6, ISO:400.

Thanks for checking it out!
