Croome Court, Parkland and Church

By DicksPics
Many thanks for all votes and comments on my Croome Court upload and, especially, to Janet(JanetDinah), Dave(HobbitDave) and Steve(Stephen_B) for their wonderful awards - all very much appreciated, as always.

Today's upload shows some more images from our visit to Croome.

The lead image shows part of the 1 mile long, hand dug serpentine river as it winds its way through the park from the ornamental lake shown in V4.

V2 shows a wider view of the parkland with St. Mary Magdalene Church on Church Hill and the Court to the right.

V2 and V3 show the church and court from other viewpoints on the estate.

V5 shows another section of the river as it begins its journey towards the house.

The parkland at Croome, designed by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown, was largely unproductive marshland before he arrived on the scene, however

"........... he swept away the local village, which was in view of the house, and rebuilt it further away shrouded by tree planting. He removed Croome's Medieval church and created a new Gothic church overlooking the park .............."

At least the village and church were re-built - I wonder what will happen in the aftermath of HS2!!Smile

I hope your weekend is going well.
