Calke Abbey, Derbyshire


This is exactly what I pictured when reading M.R. James's "The Mezzotint". This is Calke Abbey in Derbyshire, which felt as haunted as it looks.


The grounds were full of ancient trees, graveyards, stone grottos and underground passages.


Its interior was full of dark, twisting corridors, animal remains and dusty old furniture.

  2. lovely stuff indeed...

    these may have been taken in May but they're hitting the spot just now as Autumn really gets underway.

    the view of the abbey in the distance made me think of the start of "Lost Hearts".
