Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

This is Gawthorpe Hall a superb Jacobean historic house, nestled in the shadow of Pendle Hill, east Lancashire. Built between 1600 and 1605 for the Shuttleworth family it had an iconic and important role in the local area.

On a visit you can see the original seventeenth century panelling and plasterwork in the Drawing Room; period Victorian rooms redesigned by sir Charles Barry (architect of Houses of Parliament) showing what life was like for the family in the 1890s and enjoy the splendour of the Long Gallery. The hall also has fabulous furniture, paintings and the Gawthorpe Textile Collection displays on the first floor.

Gawthorpe Hall is one of the few buildings in N.E. Lancashire belonging to the National Trust. At the moment, it is having an important overhaul and will not be open for tours until Easter. Because of that, I could only photograph the exterior.

On this occasion, I used ColourEfex antique mode, to create a more atmospheric image of the building.

I will place the original in a workshop along with a close-up of the interesting doorway.

I wish you a most enjoyable Sunday, Bev :-)
