Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

My last photograph revealed part of the ruin of Wycoller Hall, a once beautiful residence and the supposed inspiration for Ferndean Manor, in Charlotte Bronte's book 'Jane Eyre'.

This photograph was taken from inside the ruin, looking out through the mullioned windows.

I hope this photograph will give you some indication of the thick, stone mullions into which the glass would have been embedded, and also, the pleasant view that would have been obtained through the windows.

The windows looked out towards the footpath, the beck and two of the old bridges which traversed the beck. It would have given the occupants an excellent view of anyone going past the hall. I feel sure that it was important to observe everyday life, through the window, especially for budding authors!

Another view of the ruin in my w/s and next time, I will show the bridge which is outside this window.

Have a wonderful w/e and a Happy Easter to those of Christian faith, Bev :-)
