091201 Shibden Hall

The rain stopped today, although if the weather forecast is to be believed, in is a brief interlude rather than a cessation. Amy and I took the opportunity of visiting Shibden Park which is a few miles from where we live. Today's picture shows Shibden Hall, the Tudar house which in the nineteenth century was famously the home of Ann Lister. No doubt the rain will keep us near to home for the next few days, so you can expect more pictures of our outing to Shibden.

Lovely looking place, Alan. Is Lister anything to do with the wool company?

Beautiful photo. Although the weather is drear, the soft light really makes everything glow. It's a long time since I visited Shibden Park - must go again.
