Baddersley Clinton
Have just returned from a few days away, staying in Coventry, was able to make a few visits whilst up there. This is Baddersley Clinton, Warwickshire, a National Trust property, and well worth a visit.
Perhaps the house has been extended over the years and not the prettiest building from the outside, surrounded by a moat and a pleasant small garden between the wings of the house.
Internally one of the nicest property's I have seen, many original features, and even a priest hole that was used. Just the sort of place where I would like to live really.

I'd like to live somewhere with a moat; I would need a drawbridge, though I think it looks quite attractive so you would well as a estate agent photographer as this image would sell this place to me. A tricky shot to get all the verticals right; at the moment, I'm concerned that the nearest chimney stack could come crashing through the roof. Just a minor nitpick, though.

What a gorgeous 'house' that is and a very good shot Jeffrey.
A mix of architecture that certainly keeps me busy looking around the image.
Very well exposed, pin sharp and lovely colours, I like this a lot Jeffrey.
I appreciate Alan's concern about the chimney, which I'm sure could be alleviated by some careful editing

I like the detail you have in the stonework showing all the different textures and colours in it, and you have controlled the exposure very well with detail in the shadows and highlights. Well done jeffrey

Oops I missed that, thanks for pointing it out, have pushed the chimney over just a bit and replaced the file.

Ahhhhh what a difference Jeffrey, much better, panic over
Alan will be able to sleep easy in his bed tonight

A super pin sharp shot of this stunning House with its surrounding moat, set against the blue sky has been captured beautifully showing the different textures on the building with the sunshine. Now I never knew about Priest Holes until I googled what they were & seemingly here you can actually see them at this place. You learn something knew everyday. Well done and edited. & Thank you for the information.

Well done, Jeffrey. Yes, I can sleep better now that I know the chimney is not going to crash on to the bed

An excellent record shot of what you describe as not very pretty. glad you enjoyed the interior.

Nice detailed image very sharp and well taken, like the bit of greenery growing out of the far chimney

Sorry I'm late on this Jeffrey - smashing shot and agree with everything everyone has said above but why do I feel like I've seen something like this before ? ah - in another life perhaps?
