Cholmondeley   14 comments

I’ll give you a bit of a tease, here are some shots of the Cholmondeley Estate.In this shot you can see the gatehouse we are staying in and the castle behind it, like I said yesterday it’s an inner gatehouse and is called ‘Somerset Lodge’

This is the main door to the castle, it’s actually the back door, it’s huge but I couldn’t get anything to put near for a sense of size, you’ll just have to take my word for it.

Can anyone guess what this is, sort of steps going nowhere, try to guess before you scroll down.

It’s a Mounting Block, to make it easier for Gentry to mount their horse.

  1. Cool images Mark and, no, I didn’t know what it was. When I get a horse, maybe I’ll get one ;-o

  2. What a wonderful place, I love that door and can well imagine the huge scale of it. I did guess the purpose of the steps, but only because I’ve seen them before. I didn’t realise you were actually living in the gatehouse, how marvellous!

  3. I’m really enjoying this series. Wonderf shots. Love that door.

  4. One could really play “king of the castle” on this holiday. Virginia

  5. A very impressive door. The third shot looked a bit like a parapet at first sight, but I couldn’t work out what a mountain block was doing so high up.

  6. Great images of a really cool place!

  7. Se ve un lugar precioso!!
