    Default 'Gay Manor


    The Barry family built this manor house in the 16th century. It has an E-shaped plan with gabled wings and a battlemented central porch.In it's Elizabethan form it remained unaltered until the 19th century but by 1809 it was in a neglected state. In the 1880s the house was divided into two tenements but in 1887 it was gutted by fire. It has never been restored and remains an ivy-clad ruin with a sheep crap carpet. (Abridged Wikipedia)

    There are old maps of Newcastle and the surrounding area. Back when this building was built, only a handful owned the land surrounding the city here - I'll bet they looked just like the house in these buildings. In full colour that is!

    I kinda like the feel of the images here. Works well with the old building. Would definitely make for a dramatic framed photo on a wall.
    Could you tell me a little about your camera please??
    Full of meaty goodness.

    Every time I see one of your reports it makes me want to dig out my old D90 and get it converted.

    Love it, cheers!
