Richard's Photo Gallery - Parnham

A man should keep his little brain attic stocked with all the furniture that he is ever likely to use, and the rest he can put away in the lumber-room of his library, where he can get it if he wants it.

Parnham House and fountain Location Parnham, Dorset, 1km S. of Beaminster, OS ref ST474003
Date 2000 July 23rd.
Lens Olympus 50mm F1.8 @F8
Expose 1/500

In the summer of 2001 I read that Parnham House had closed to the public.

A very upmarket lumber-room this because, although the house is all you would expect from one of its size and date (from 1540), it boasted a craftsmanship exhibition and contemporary furniture workshops.

The garden was certainly worth a visit but it was a bit short on labels - hence the ?s here. Catananche caerulea (?).
