Out and About with a Camera

I've taken a lot of photos recently, mostly of places or building styles I may want to write about at some point.

First off I went to Marwell Zoo briefly on the 16th of April. Lots of animals, but also a rather smashing house that I've never really paid much attention to before.

The day after, I was lazing around when it occurred to me there was still time to go somewhere for a couple of hours. So off I drove to Portchester Castle.

The following Saturday, I wanted to go to Netley Abbey but it was shut. So I went to Titchfield Abbey instead.

Then the following Saturday I went to Minster Lovell Hall, which has a fascinating tale or two attached to it. Including the tale of the last Lord Lovell who may have died while hiding in a secret cellar room.

On the day of the Royal Wedding, I visited the Weald and Downland Museum, and took many photos. The set starts here and has been tweaked slightly to form a logical tour of the entire site.

This staircase was particularly interesting, because I suspect there was a similar one in the Suffolk house before the men that rebuilt and extended it in the 1950s added one in the new part of the house.

Next time I have a quiet hour or so, I'll relabel the photos with better details.

On the Bank Holiday Monday I finally made it to Netley Abbey when it was open (after only three years of trying). Very pretty ruins indeed.
