WHERE IS THIS?




I post one of my photographs occasionally to prove how well travelled I was before family commitments restricted my holidays to Hay on Wye, and you try to work out where it was taken.
It isn't Hay on Wye......

No sorry another good guess, but the wrong direction.

Is it an eccentric American industrialist's Old World fantasy constructed along the Hudson River?

CFR, you are correct it is Kylemore Abbey in the west of Ireland. I can highly recommend the scenery and the black stuff, but take a raincoat.

Peter, not that far west but I can see your point. There is a little bit of Vanderbilt eccentricity in the architecture. I work as a volunteer at Knightshayes Court an 1870s Gothic castle in the Devon countryside. That was the creation of a very eccentric Victorian William Burges for the Heathcoat Amory family, who were local landowners and industrialists.
