C'est magnifique. On faisait de belles constructions à  l'époque.
Bill Phillips: It is a wonderful Victorian house Martine

In an ideal world I would have lived there myself and lived a life of Victorian opulence

And all this because of guano!
Bill Phillips: Where there's muck there's brass
Fabulous work, Bill. I assume this is a "stitchery" of several images?
Bill Phillips: Three I think Ginnie

A nice little pad. I could be happy living there in a previous life, I'm sure - assuming I had staff, of course.
Bill Phillips: Not bad is it?

a wonderful pano image - Victorian Gothic - I heard this term for the first time - I knew only the term Mock Tudor - this is a place I would like to visit one day.
Bill Phillips: Gothic Revival (also referred to as Victorian Gothic, neo-Gothic, or Gothick) is an architectural movement popular in the Western world that began in the late 1740s in England. Its popularity grew rapidly in the early 19th century, when increasingly serious and learned admirers of neo-Gothic styles sought to revive medieval Gothic architecture, in contrast to the neoclassical styles prevalent at the time. Gothic Revival draws features from the original Gothic style, including decorative patterns, finials, lancet windows, hood moulds and label stops.

The Gothic Revival movement emerged in 18th-century England, gaining ground in the 19th. Its roots were intertwined with deeply philosophical movements associated with Catholicism and a re-awakening of High Church or Anglo-Catholic belief concerned by the growth of religious nonconformism. Ultimately, the "Anglo-Catholicism" tradition of religious belief and style became widespread for its intrinsic appeal in the third quarter of the 19th century. Gothic Revival architecture varied considerably in its faithfulness to both the ornamental style and principles of construction of its medieval original, sometimes amounting to little more than pointed window frames and a few touches of Gothic decoration on a building otherwise on a wholly 19th-century plan and using contemporary materials and construction methods.

In parallel to the ascendancy of neo-Gothic styles in 19th-century England, interest spread rapidly to the continent of Europe, in Australia, Sierra Leone, South Africa and to the Americas; the 19th and early 20th centuries saw the construction of very large numbers of Gothic Revival and Carpenter Gothic structures worldwide. The influence of the Revival had nevertheless peaked by the 1870s. New architectural movements, sometimes related as in the Arts and Crafts movement, and sometimes in outright opposition, such as Modernism, gained ground, and by the 1930s the architecture of the Victorian era was generally condemned or ignored. The later 20th century saw a revival of interest, manifested in the United Kingdom by the establishment of the Victorian Society in 1958.

That is some residence here, Bill. I did a google on this house. It is quite the unique place.
I love your picture. In Wiki they had this text underneath their panorama: Panoramic view of the entrance area, showing (left to right) the library, entrance hall, main house, bedroom wing and chapel
Bill Phillips: If you like victorian Gothic then this is the ultimate house!

A little more opulent than a Southwold beach hut
Bill Phillips: The beach hut probably cost more
I have this image in my head of men inside with wheelchairs and walking frames and nurses.
Bill Phillips: Could be us in a few years
Could be a good spot for the 2020 get together?
Bill Phillips: It would be great but a fair treck from up north

Extravagant, to say the least. They probably had so many personnel that they were reckoned a congregation of their own. Great picture.
Bill Phillips: There probably would be Louis. It is quite a chapel!

It's somewhere I've always wanted to visit, Bill, and you've tweaked my interest to make sure I do so before I die, so let me know when you and Chris move in and have a house-warming party.....!
Bill Phillips: It is well worth a visit. Gets very busy but there is a big car park
I'm sure there are lots of nooks & crannies in this residence, Bill. Would love to explore all the rooms here.
Bill Phillips: You would love it I think Beverly. It is an amazing house
Great job for the pano. Very nice.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Mary. It is a great house
It looks the sort of house that would be used in one of those ghost story sort of films.
Bill Phillips: Oh yes Brian it is 100% Gothic!
