On Wednesday Maggie and I visited this fantastic National Trust house with Walsall U3A. Tyntesfield is some 7 miles SW of Bristol. It was built by the Gibbs family who literally never threw anything away. There's one room with over 20 chamber pots in it amongst all the other junk! It's the NT's largest restoration/conservation project. I do wonder what effect living in such a place had upon people. I hope these few images give an impression of the house.

As flash is not allowed all these images were taken at ISO800 on the Fuji X100 handheld at f2.8 or f2. I've used a little sharpening on the blue channel but no noise reduction. The shots of the building front, the hall and stairs and the chapel are all multiple shots stitched in CS3.
