Castle Howard



This is for bobwed.
Castle Howard is a stately home in North Yorkshire, England, 15 miles (24 km) north of York. One of the grandest private residences in Britain, most of it was built between 1699 and 1712 for the 3rd Earl of Carlisle, to a design by Sir John Vanbrugh. Although Castle Howard was built near the site of the ruined Henderskelfe Castle, it is not a true castle, but this term is often used for English country houses constructed after the castle-building era (c.1500) and not intended for a military function.


Castle Howard has been the home of part of the Howard family for more than 300 years. Today, it is part of the Treasure Houses of England heritage group.


The house is surrounded by a large estate which, at the time of the 7th Earl of Carlisle, covered over 13,000 acres (5,300 ha) and included the villages of Welburn, Bulmer, Slingsby, Terrington and Coneysthorpe.[1] The estate was served by its own railway station, Castle Howard, from 1845 to the 1950s.

Love the unusual edit affects applied to the fine landscape. A fine composition with the inclusion of the foreground. An amazing site to this Yank. This once belonged to one family? And, thank you for the fine narration, too. Made for all the better experience.
