Photographer's Note

My first picture from a wonderful and friendly TE meeting in Derbyshire last week and a photograph of Tissington Hall which we visited on what, unfortunately, was a very dull and wet day.

Tissington is a delightful little village in Derbyshire and Tissington Hall was built in 1609 by Francis FitzHerbert to replace the moated fortification that guarded the Norman Church that straddles the hill in the centre of the village. For over 400 years the Hall has presided over the picturesque Estate Village at the south of the Peak District and only 4 miles north of the market town of Ashbourne. In 2009 the present incumbent, Sir Richard FitzHerbert, has celebrated the 400 years that the Hall has been built.

I've no idea who the two people are in the foreground but I thought I could include them in my picture as we sheltered under some of the trees in the extensive gardens of the hall.

The weather might not have been ideal for most of the time but the company was excellent and we all had fun. I have to thank Will for all the time and effort he put into organising our meeting as well as Ann, Bev, Len, Mike, Claude and Jasmine and husband, Kevin, who helped make it such a delightful few days.
