Still looks good


Comment by David Fairclough on 7th June 2011 at 02:04
Nice shot Dan, make me miss walking up towards the hall from Plantation Gates or the old rialway cutting and seeing Haigh Hall in the distance. Thanks


Comment by peterp on 7th June 2011 at 07:46
looks drab close up looks nicer from afar


Comment by Garners girl on 7th June 2011 at 07:53
Love this place, just wish someone would spend decent money on it and put everything back as it should be.Great photo.


Comment by aitch on 7th June 2011 at 09:00
The 4 ground floor windows behind the mini were the living quarters of my old friend Laurence Wilson, who, in the 60s, was the caretaker of the hall, I spent many a weekend in there with him and his wife, and 3 dogs. he is sadly missed.


Comment by Colin Harlow on 7th June 2011 at 09:06
It needs shot-blasting to bring it back to life.


Comment by david on 7th June 2011 at 09:25
Good photograph - did you use a tilt/shift?


Comment by alan on 7th June 2011 at 09:30
we went up to mucaster castle the other week, the place were tom skelton(tom fool) there is a portrait of him and haigh hall is mentioned in his last will and testament as somewhere he visited quite often. there must be loads of history in this place what no one knows about what a shame.

i love this building, theres some others pictures on here of inside it, would be nice if they took it back to how it was with all the same decor ect as many years ago.. good photo


Comment by Catherine on 7th June 2011 at 13:49
I agree with Garner's girl. It would be great if the old greenhouses were back again too.


Comment by John on 7th June 2011 at 14:24
A little bit too much grass in the picture - a higher angle would have worked better.


Comment by Linma on 7th June 2011 at 14:51
Another nice pic Don.

Two days on the run John and you have been critical!


Comment by Dan on 7th June 2011 at 15:18
@ David - No tilt shift used, just a straight forward shot, no editing or photoshop work of any king on this one.


Comment by Cyril on 7th June 2011 at 19:09
A great shot Dan, the green of the grass makes the hall stand out.


Comment by dave marsh on 7th June 2011 at 19:48
It's a fair comment made by John in a polite manner.


Comment by Ken R on 7th June 2011 at 23:37
It's still very impressive to see what is literally in the backyards of so many people.
Good shot.


Comment by John Morris on 8th July 2011 at 22:24
Less grass means more sky, and converging verticals through tilting the camera up. I prefer it as it is.


Comment by josie on 29th July 2011 at 00:56
my daughter was married there in may 2010, what a wonderfull day we had, haigh hall is a place i remember in my childhood 50s it was so beautiful the pond was full of fish and the greenhouse full of beautiful plants ,not long ago we went there and there was fish in the pond but i was there about a month ago and there were no fish why? i still love haigh hall but its not the same today it seems that the kids play area is more important all done up and the lovely pond is left to diteariate ??anyway my daughters wedding album is fabulouse, she has the hall inside and out ,pics of grounds car an all , when i was little if someone said to me your daughter will get married here in 2010 i would never beleived it.
