Photographer's Note

Another post from the National Trust property, Oxburgh Hall. Oxburgh Hall is a moated manor house in Norfolk, East Anglia. It was built in the 15th Century by Sir Edmund Bedingfeld and now owned by the National Trust. I rather like the view from the roof top looking down onto a group of National Trust orange deck chairs.

The National Trust is a charity that works to preserve and protect historic places and spaces. It was founded over 100 years ago. In 1884 Octavia Hill was asked to help preserve Sayes Court garden in London and provided the idea of the National Trust. The other co-founders of the Trust were Sir Robert Hunter and Canon Hardwicke Rawnsley. Officially it was inaugurated in 1894. The first propery was bought in 1896 and was Alfriston Clergy House in Sussex. By 2011 there were 4 million members of The National Trust and the number of volunteers exceeded 60,000. In addition to hundreds of properties the Trust now owns 742 miles of coastline.

Please view the WS to see a classic view of Oxburgh Hall.
