Another brace of shots from Witley Court in Worcestershire. The colonnades and arches stand relics to the 19th century wealth of the estate, which had the contemporary equivalent of £100 million pumped into the existing Jacobean house.

Unfortunately to all, it was bought by a salvage merchant for £4000, who sacked the residence, ripping out statues and tearing down supporting beams.
