Chastleton Windows and Stairs

As promised a few of the interiors from Chastleton house - many retaining original Jacobaean woodwork. Taken with Fuji X-10 with 10-24mm lens; in some cases, three bracketed shots were taken 1stop apart and processed through Lightroom HDR but often a single exposure gave sufficient tonal adjustment.
Also shown one of the two croquet lawns, originally laid out by Walter Whitmore-Jones in the 1860s. His version of the rules of croquet published in The Field in 1865 became definitive, and Chastleton is considered the birthplace of croquet as a competitive sport (Wikipaedia). Thanks to Sue B-H for pointing this out to me.
