A Sunday Amble

This is Elvaston Castle and its gardens , the castle itself is Gothic revival and is a fabulous backdrop to a relaxed afternoon . Yet this magnificent building is on the buildings at risk register , it would be a fabulous wedding venue , there's a cafe there and a gift shop here . There's so much that needs doing it is in the hands of the local authority who don't really have the money for its up keep , the car park is pay and display and you can't go round the house . But oh the solid state beauty of the place that is crying out to be saved ...


  1. Wow what a stunning place to go and visit, I always wonder what it might be like to live in these places x

  2. We went round the walled garden a couple of years ago. It's such a sad state of affairs. I'm surprised it hasn't been handed over to the National Trust or English Heritage.

  3. I adore old houses, it seems to sad that it is at risk of going. Mich x
