This is the marvellous Elizabethan Montacute House, down below yesterday's tower. Nice work if you can get it. Now owned by the National Trust
Nice shot of this majestic building Grouser.
Did you spot the big acorns and leaf ?

@Doug: I did indeed
A lovely old pile indeed, good symmetric shot, wouldn't like the job of painting the window frames!

@Curly: one for life though :)
Wow ..A wonderful framing !!

Not dissimilar to my house...which has also got a door and some windows!

@CElliottUK: I must pop over for the weekend:)
Very striking point of view - it's a big step forward (and upwards in status) to get to that front door. Imagine what the heating bill would be for this place!

Ha, wonderful title to compliment this architectural shot, Grouser - nicely done.

A marvelous building that strikes me as a bit foreboding. I'm glad the government is maintaining this and keeping it as a heritage item.

Just imagine keeping that place warm ! Nice

Impressionnant le nombre de carreaux en verre qui permettent d'ouvrir la façade sur l'extérieur!
Bonne fin de journée chal-heureuse!

What a handsome building. What a fine image. What a great title! What the hell did I do wrong to be so firmly within the other percentile? ;-)

Rather austere to me ... give me a country cottage and a nice garden and I'd be happier! ;D

But you mustn't forget,"we're all in this together".

great looking pile and capture.

That house friend! How to spend the weekend without having an army of people to clean ... The building is beautiful grouser... A hug, Adela

Could be lost for days in a place like that . . and to think this house was valued ‘for scrap’ in 1931 at £5,882.
