Another National Trust
(we enjoy these properties, had you guessed)
a Victorian Gothic house
We have been here before, but since our last visit
they have done some decorating on the building
- the downpipes for one thing.
Thought this was out of keeping really and emphasises a
not so attractive feature, but hey, such is the decision.
Thought the creamy/yellow paint looked better around these windows...
and now for some pictures from
This is one very ornate doorway
This table and chairs in the next photo were a 'Set'.
Tyntesfield was used for a TV program 'Sherlock' ?? think I'm right on that.
Anyway, they left this staged setup for visitors to see the
actual room where a scene was filmed.
(can you guess that was completely lost on me!!!)
I much preferred seeing this fancy light above the billiard table
and clearly another visitor thought the same, lol.
No, they didn't have 'blinds' at the windows back in the day. These are used throughout the National Trust properties to restrict the light damaging objects in the rooms.
Tyntesfield has its own church attached to the main house
and finally the walk around Tyntesfield was over
- I head back to the car after one last photo looking over towards Weston-super-Mare.
