As a member of the National Trust, you get the opportunity to visit some of Britain’s greatest heritage sites and Lanhydrock House in Cornwall is one of these beautiful locations you must visit if you live or are planning to visit Cornwall in the near future. The house dates back to the Victorian times but some parts of the building date from around the 1620s and changed dramatically after a major fire in 1881.
The house sits on the 890 acre Lanhydrock estate and after the Dissolution of the Monasteries during the 1530’s, a wealthy merchant, Sir Richard Robartes acquired the estate of which he began building Lanhydrock House.
It is a really impressive estate and has about 50 rooms which are open to the public and with a stunning plasterwork ceiling located in the gallery. The whole house really takes you back in time as to what life was like for those living in the Victorian times for both the wealthy and those who served at the estate.
I wanted to portray a sense of time in the photography I took around the house. So with keeping the outside grounds in colour to show off its surroundings, I did some post-production for the inside photos by adding a sepia look effect, which really adds to the overall sense of time you get when going around the house.
