Derrymore House

By maytownme  
Derrymore House in Bessbrook, Co Armagh.

It was built between 1776 and 1787 by Sir Isaac Corry MP for Newry for thirty years, on land he inherited from his father. The house, built in the cottage style, was described by Sir Charles Coote as "without exception, the most elegant summer lodge..." The Act of Union was drafted in the drawing room of the house in 1800. The surrounding parkland was laid out by John Sutherland, one of the most celebrated disciples of Capability Brown.

The last in my Winter Series uploads and my personal favourite.

Thanks everyone for all the kind comments and clicks on my previous uploads, Regards, Danny.

The colour of the house really pops against the background. I like the addition of the upper branches in the image.
