Seaton Delaval Hall

 

Main hall of the West Wing.  The only time I'd been here previously was in 1970 when a bunch of us attended a so-called "Medieval Banquet" - during which the mead flowed like water and the waiters and waitresses took time out to entertain with songs and instrumentals.  A good time was had by all!

Were the waiting gals, buxom and boisterous, Tom, as befitting the Period?
Tom Wilson: Of course, Ray - buxom lassies with trays of foaming tankards, as you would expect smile

The room is grand and the banquet looks like boisterous fun Tom
Tom Wilson: At the time, it was all stripped back, of course - no carpets on the floors - very bare.
You certainly had a great time in this impressive place Tom!
Tom Wilson: The mead flowed like water, Richard smile
It sure needs a lick of paint.
Tom Wilson: Thats probably the result of my processing, Mary - it has all be done very recently and was just re-opened this year.
Nice shot Tom. I've often thought that full suits of armour would make one almost unable to fight.
I like those swords at the ready...
