Saltram Part 3

Saltram House was originally a Tudor House but the Parker family remodelled into a Palladian mansion through the latter half of the 18th century and on into the Regency as we will see.

This is the South front. Its Entrance Porch with the Doric columns and the coat of arms were added in 1820 by the Parker who had become first Earl of Morley in 1815.


This is the House from the East front.

And a view from the house across the ha ha. A drop in the lawn with a wall to keep the deer and other animals roaming the park of the manicured lawns used by the inhabitants.

To me the house looks almost pretty enough to eat. A wedding cake of a house. And there is lots more to see if you care to stick with me.

Until next time, Happy Rambles.
