ICKWORTH HOUSE – 26

This week some members of our local photographic club travelled to Ickworth House near Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk.

Ickworth House is a National Trust Property, famous for its Rotunda, House, parkland and church. Here are some images I got on the day. The weather wasn’t brilliant – overcast at times – but no rain. We were grateful for that.

This is the famed Rotunda. The NT ( National Trust ) are in the process of raising funds to replace 7,000 pieces of slate.

This is the East Wing of the building from across the Italianate Gardens.

The last group are of St Mary’s Church in the grounds of the house – including two shots of the church interior. The lighting inside was superb. I just had to have a go at capturing it! I think I did. I hope you agree.

There was too much to take in on one day – almost certainly worth a return trip.
