Lets go Inside…….

It is a dull grey day so I thought we would head indoors…..

Indoors to view some of the rooms in Kedleston Hall, Derbyshire.  I have shared visits to the Hall and its Church on the Blog before but not what is within these historic walls.  So here is your chance.

First Kedleston Hall itself……

The Hall has been the home of the Curzon Family since the 12th century although the building you see today is mainly from the 1760’s.

Onto and into the Church of All Saints. It has been both the family and the estate Church since the 13th century. It is crammed with tombs and memoriam stones and plaques to the Curzon family all in there own way telling the extended family story over the centuries. Whilst the Hall is now a National Trust Property, All Saints is in the care of Churches Conservation Trust…….

(No tripods allowed so I had to crank up the ISO to very high so I am sorry we have a good deal of ‘noise’ on some images….but better than nothing at all!…..the two exteriors are earlier shots from a sunny day)
