Empty rooms

I have previously posted a number of photographs from Belsay Hall and this post includes yet more.  I like Belsay; it is a solid imposing structure which sits squarely and at home in the Northumberland landscape despite, or perhaps because of, its Grecian architecture. Part of the attraction is that the building is almost entirely empty and I am not obliged to feign interest in some dead toff’s silverware and porcelain collection.  It is the perfect exhibition space which over Easter housed a floral display on the lower floors, arranged on a theme heralding the forthcoming “Frills & Frivolity” display of Regency costumes from film and TV. I was more taken by the empty rooms on the upper floors which have an eerie dream like quality:
