I thought this manor house were Darksfield - but I imagine well the atmosphere of this noble house with a special history!
Bill Phillips: Tyntesfield is a gem Philine. You would enjoy it very much

I suppose its alright .... But hells bells man talk about shovelling at us with even more doom and gloom as the grey wetness of the last days of 2012 slide into room 101.
Bill Phillips: You will be pleased to learn that tomorrow is cheerful, colourful rubbish

That's an evil looking group above the fireplace - complete with faithful dog. Nicely balanced with the child in white lurking in the shadows.
Bill Phillips: And that was only the children!
The child was luck1

Slightly grainy b&w but not bad under the circumstances. I seem to remember they ban flash?
Bill Phillips: You can't use flash in any NT properties, which makes sense. I am quite happy to lose a bit of sharpness for some atmosphere though.

A doggone great play with light, blackdog ... err, sorry about that yellowbear.

The site is becoming a zoo.
Bill Phillips: You should see the rest of the menagerie........
You've done well Bill considering there seems to be hardly any light at all in that room.
Bill Phillips: Well there was a bit more than there seems Brian.
Why didn't anyone ever smile for portraits back then? Except Mona Lisa of course...
Bill Phillips: They probably had very bad teeth
A fine BW composition Bill.
Bill Phillips: Cheers Fred
Difficult lighting, Bill - looks like a cosy spot though!
Bill Phillips: I love Tyntesfield. A Victorian masterpiece!
Very impressive with this light play Bill! Well done.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Richard. Glad you like it.

Lol at Philine. They need to get some better lighting.
Bill Phillips: It is all about conservation of the fabrics.
Didn't quite have the hang of 'minimalism', did they?
Bill Phillips: You would never accuse the Victorians of that.
