    Default Peaks Place


    Apologies for the poor name as Im sure many of you will know where this is anyway, I just thought it is really too nice to get trashed.

    So I was up in the peaks celebrating my parents Golden wedding & thought no one would miss me for a few early morning hours so I trundled off for an explore.
    This house sits back from a lake in a beautiful setting & is a mile & a half walk which is another reason for its relatively good condition (dont even think the metal thieves have found it) there is history on line, but I met a dog walker as I was coming out who was quite friendly & told me he used to know the guy that lived there.

    To his knowledge the family still own the property & tried to sell last year but turned down 750k. I agree with him that this was daft as he states the estimated renovation costs are 4-5 mill.

    Unfortunately again it looks like this may be left until it eventually falls in on itself!

    I hope the building is saved, looks like there is potential there. You took some nice shots such as looking through the window.

    No, B&W is perfect. Only bit that could have been improved, is if you had moved the camera's viewpoint ever so slightly and caused the right hand Lion on the Post to move away from the stonework of the four circle overlapping cutout. Only needs to be a fraction, because you do not want to loose the tree being nicely framed in the upper cutout. I am not one for 'Arty' photographs of derelict subjects, but images that are nicely composed are another matter and always seem to add to the subject matter. A nice set of images of this place.
