Claydon

Sunny weekend weather meant an excursion out, and this time it was Claydon and Stowe, two National Trust venues within a few minutes of each other. Claydon is an 18th Century mansion belonging to the Verney family, and has some of the most magnificent ceilings you will ever see. The carving in the pine around the ceilings and door frames is just exquisite, and reflects the lavish taste of Sir Ralph Verney, who extravagance contributed to his financial ruin. The property is replete with some truly fantastic furnishings and chinoiserie, and even has it's own small museum. The staircase leading up to the dome skylight is just one of the highlights.As the interiors were part of a private collection, no photography was allowed inside, so I focused on the exteriors and also the interior of the lovely adjoining church.Once again, I must thank the wonderful and generous guides for their time and knowledge, helping to make our visit so enjoyable and interesting. These photos were all taken with the EM5 and various lenses, mainly the Panasonic 14mm F/2.5.
