What’s this? Down again? Well, apparently so…
Today’s outing was to Seaton Deleval Hall, which it’s taken me a while to get around to visiting. It’s about 45 minutes from Newcastle on one of those buses that takes a very meandering route, but gets there eventually. I had a good look around the place – it’s an odd mix of nicely preserved rooms in one wing and a just saved in time before it could fall down near ruin in the other. And it’s got formal gardens, woodland, and more to enjoy. And it’s always good to flash my National Trust card to get into places!
This is a view of the entrance to the not quite in perfect condition part of the hall:
