Christmas at Doddington Hall, Lincolnshire 2015. (5 of 5).

This is the last set of images from Doddington Hall at Christmas.  I hope you've enjoyed seeing the decorations there.
This display was at the bottom of the main staircase.

I suspect that the 2 "heads" at the rear are an all year feature.



Back into the Great Hall and someone is waiting to greet you.


May I join Father Christmas and his Elf helper in wishing
you all a Very Happy Christmas.
For the photographers amongst you, all images taken on a Panasonic Lumix G6 camera with a 14 - 140mm zoom lens.
The light was quite low so they were all taken at 3200 ISO.

Christmas at Doddington Hall, Lincolnshire 2015. (4 of 5).

The staircases at Doddington Hall were very nicely decorated, here are just a few examples of how colourful they were.


This colourful display was on the landing area
between 2 flights of stairs.

Christmas at Doddington Hall, Lincolnshire 2015. (3 of 5).

The rooms at the top of the Hall were decorated in a modern style.
This first room had strips of lighting in a geometric design.  On the floor were groups of what appeared to be broken crystals from a chandelier that were illuminated by spotlights shone across the floor.






This was The Egyptian Room.  
Other than a rotating lamp scattering differing coloured lights around this room it is arranged
with comfy  seating ans wall coverings that are there the whole year around.

Christmas at Doddington Hall, Lincolnshire 2015. (2 of 5).

Continuing the tour of Doddington Hall, decorated for Christmas.


This was my favourite room in the Hall, it was sumptuous and had a warmth to it.

There are 2 Main staircases in the Hall and they were beautifully decorated.

Another lovely room, modestly decorated but it had a lovely atmosphere.

The piano is a lovely old instrument.

Chandeliers in most rooms. 

Another view of one of the elaborately decorated staircases.

This was a small side room, I'm not sure if this is Christmas decorations but it's very attractive.

A better view of the HUGE array of Christmas trimmings above the stair well.
