West side of Wallington Hall
This is a shot recently taken from the West side of Wallington Hall. Wallington is a country house and gardens located 12 miles west of Morpeth, Northumberland near the village of Cambo. The estate was owned by the Fenwick family from 1475 until their financial problems caused them to sell their properties to the Blacketts. The hall house was rebuilt in 1688 around the Pele Tower house, it was later on rebuilt again before it was passed on to the Trevelyan family in 1777 Charles Philip Trevelyan inherited the property from his father George Otto Trevelyan in 1928. Wallington is set in 100 acres of rolling parkland, the estate includes a wooded dene valley , lakes & a walled garden. They also have a bird hide there which has recently been re built , where we have seen about 7-8 red squirells again. The estate is owned by the National Trust, of which the house is as well.

What a very nice house your description adds a lot of depth to a well taken photo, like it a lot, well done

The cross lighting has certainly helped to enhance the detail in this fine old Hall. Pin sharp and lovely colours, well down Helen, like it loads.

A smashing shot of this fine building and you have reminded me that I still haven't been their in all my visits to Northumberland. Like it very much.

Nothing wrong with this one at all, a perfect rendition of the lovely old place. If I were to be picky and with a pure record shot it is probably out of order, but a little bit of foreground interest would have helped. Of course there was none to be had which is why I said maybe out of order.

Thank you all for your comments, much appreciated.

Welcome back Helen, nice view of the hall, interesting your switching of file formats, I read recently that each time a jpeg is saved and opened the image gets worse. So I guess a good idea to save as tiff, bigger files but more detail saved.
No distortion in the image, and looks great in the new larger available view.

Thank you Jeffrey. I had decided to try & take some photos in raw & normally save & work in tiff anyway until final image when save as JPEG.

Good to see you back again, Helen. I believe that this was the first building owned by the National Trust. The angle of sun brings out the subtle colour variations of the stone. Very nicely done.
