BROADS CRUISE.

Yesterday I joined 3 other Guys for a trip with Broads Photographic Cruises on the River Ant, a dull and dark day but at least it stayed dry.
We had several sightings of Kingfishers but the low light and even with a high ISO setting didn't help matters.
Below a wide selection of images captured.






 








 
And lastly a couple of fun combination images.

Great Massingham.

Great Massingham is one of Norfolk's most attractive villages located approximately 40 miles west of Norwich and 13 miles to the east of King’s Lynn, having one of the most impressive greens in the county. Several large ponds dominate the village, some of which have their origins as the fish ponds for an 11th century Augustinian Abbey. In 2009 the village won a CPRE Community Open Spaces award and in both 2009 & 2010 an ‘EDP Pride in Norfolk’ award for villages with a population under 1000.

Hughenden Manor.

Hughenden Manor is a red brick Victorian mansion, located in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, England. In the 19th century, it was the country house of the Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli. Today, it is owned by the National Trust and fully open to the public.
During the Second World War, Hughenden Manor was used as a secret intelligence base code-named "Hillside". The UK Air Ministry staff at the manor analysed aerial photography of Germany and created maps for bombing missions, including the famous "Dambusters" raid.

ANGLESEY ABBEY.

Anglesey Abbey is a country house, formerly a priory, in the village of Lode, 5 12 miles (8.9 km) northeast of Cambridge, England. The house and its grounds are owned by the National Trust and are open to the public as part of the Anglesey Abbey, Garden & Lode Mill property, although some parts remain the private home of the Fairhaven family.
Our visit coincided with the Dahlia Festival with colour everywhere.












ICKWORTH HOUSE, SUFFOLK.

ICKWORTH HOUSE, SUFFOLK.

The house built between 1795 and 1829, was formerly the chief dwelling of an estate owned by the Hervey family, later Marquesses of Bristol, since 1467. The building was the creation of Frederick Hervey, 4th Earl of Bristol and Bishop of Derry who commissioned the Italian architect Asprucci to design him a classical villa in the Suffolk countryside. The Earl died in 1803, leaving the completion of house to his successor.
 In 1956, the house, park, and a large endowment were given to the National Trust in lieu of death duties. As part of the handover agreement, a 99-year lease on the 60-room East Wing was given to the Marquess of Bristol. However, in 1998 the 7th Marquess of Bristol sold the remaining lease on the East Wing to the National Trust. He was succeeded by his half-brother Frederick William Augustus Hervey, 8th Marquess of Bristol (born 19 October 1979).
