Adapted from Wikipedia...

North Cadbury is a village 5 miles (8 km) west of Wincanton in the South Somerset district of Somerset, England. The name Cadbury means Cada's fort and refers to Cadbury Castle. Following the Norman Conquest the manor was held by the Newmarches and descended by marriage to the Moels family around 1230. It then passed to the lords Botreaux (1337), lords Hungerford (1462) and the lords Hastings in 1468.

North Cadbury Court is a country house built around 1580-1610, by Sir Francis Hastings, who inherited the estate from his father in 1544. After his wife died in 1596 Hastings sold the court with the rest of the manor to Matthew Ewens. In 1910 the court was bought by Sir Archibald Langham.

Beautifully taken, Chris - I love the way you capture every ounce of light available, and can make the colours so vivid and lively...great composition too, with plenty of interest and a eye-catching left-to-right slope to it. V

It certainly has a long history. If only those walls could talk, eh? The stories they could tell. I compliment you on your HDR work, Chris. I believe you are using this process the way it was intended. Keep it real! Voted
