Kedleston Hall - National Trust - near Quarndon, Derby, UK

[ link ]

Spectacular 18th-century mansion with Adam interiors and parkland

Take a trip back in time to the 1760s at this spectacular Neo-classical mansion framed by historic parkland.

"Designed for lavish entertaining" .... and displaying an extensive collection of paintings, sculpture and original furnishings, Kedleston is a stunning example of the work of architect Robert Adam.

The Curzon family have lived here since the 12th-century and continue to live at the Hall. Lord Curzon's Eastern Museum is a treasure trove of fascinating objects acquired on his travels in Asia and while Viceroy of India (1899 to 1905).


As a personal critique I wish the dof to have been a bit deeper. The footpath past this room was to the left of the image and that was the light source, as well. Every time someone walked by their shadow fell across the setting. I hurried the image a little to much without getting the dof to my liking.

Thanks, so much, to everyone for looking in to my gallery and special thanks to all who leave thoughts, ideas and comments. Larry

What an ornate looking dining table fully set and just waiting for a regal grouping to sit down for a meal.

I wish you could have taken a step backwards to include the full foreground chair...

Such an elegant dining room - so beautiful. But I'm sure glad it's not mine - wouldn't have time to go out shooting pics ever as I'd be stuck home polishing the silver.

Very elegant - great that we can now take pictures in most National Trust properties.

I am guessing that a step backwards would have seen you through the wall or doorway. Great shot Larry, a very busy image. I am with Diane and polishing the silver,

Expensive silverware and setting. Nice one!
