A Warm Afternoon at Biddulph Grange

6 Oct 2019 3:10PM   Views : 816 Unique : 520

With a couple of hours spare, we found ourselves in the vicinity of Biddulph Grange Gardens, a National Trust property. Along with the adjoining Biddulph Grange Country Park, this used to be a part of the Biddulph Grange Estate. The gardens were going to ruin, the house was a hospital, and then along came the National Trust and the day was saved. The hospital areas are now apartments, a small part of the house is used for entrance and cafe but the main event is the large, very interesting formal garden. It is full of surprises - walkways, tunnels, Chinese style buildings, miniature waterfalls, waterways, a lake.....add a warm afternoon and some time idled away with a bit a bit of photography and we have all the ingredients for a Pleasant Afternoon.

So that was the preamble, and now lets look at some of the images. I used the Pentax K-1 full frame DSLR with 28-105mm, 20-35mm and 43mm Pentax lenses.

The Amazing Dalbeattie Museum Trust

This is a small but packed museum in Dalbeattie, Dumfries and Galloway. It covers a couple of floors in a corner shop location and is packed with artefacts, the bad news for us being that many of them are things that we have owned or used as youngste...

Appealing series of images here John, and somewhere that's on the list to go no as it's not so far for me.
