File:Ashridge House - geograph.org.uk - 1568926.jpg[edit]

Some while ago (last September, actually) you added the above image to A Handful of Dust, as a more appropriate example of Gothic Revival architecture than the Lancing College Chapel. At the time I agreed; subsequently (I move slowly in such matters) I've become less certain. Ashridge House was built in what Waugh approvingly calls the "pre-Ruskin" phase of the Gothic revival, but the fictional Hetton was built much later, in "the worst possible 1860 style", and is stated as being "devoid of interest". So, quite unlike Ashridge. I'm rather inclined, regretfully, to delete the Ashridge image, but as a courtesy I thought I'd consult you first. Brianboulton (talk) 19:23, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

Is Oakley Court, scene of many a Hammer film, hideous enough? Otherwise we have good pics of Carlton Towers, but that is Pugin 1840s and not without "interest", though closer - they did the film there. Johnbod (talk) 20:20, 18 July 2016 (UTC)
Waugh was a social climbing, pompous little oik, but if he knew his Perpendicular from his his Decorated is unknown, so please have whatever you feel was closest to Waugh's mind. Giano (talk) 19:50, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
Ettington Park Hotel ?? It's the right date and is a remodelling of a much earlier house in a very High style. I love it, but then I love Oakley Court where I once arranged a stag dinner that had some elements of Hammer Horror about it. KJP1 (talk) 11:53, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
Exterior shots look good. The Italianate staircase (the only interior shot we have) would no doubt have raised Waugh's ire. The hotel link at bottom is dead btw. Johnbod (talk) 13:36, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
I think it fits the bill for jaw-dropping style and history. But Brian may prefer Carlton Towers which was, as you say, used in the film, or indeed the horrors of Oakley Court. I've updated the website.KJP1 (talk) 14:01, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
When I read the book, I somehow had the impression that the house was seriously massive; much larger than either Oakley of Ettington, that's why I went for Ashridge. Carlton Towers is closer to my impression, and also has the clock tower which ensured that guests never slept. Thoresby Hall, to my mind, also has all the requirements. Giano (talk) 08:35, 29 July 2016 (UTC)
If this is a game we can all play, can I nominate Adare Manor? I can imagine Waugh's lip curling at "it now includes a golf club and it served as the judge's house for Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh on The X Factor". Scarisbrick Hall might fit the bill as well, although it's a little too small. ‑ Iridescent 09:03, 29 July 2016 (UTC)
No Iridescent, Adare looks far too nice and pleasing. Think big and monstrous, Scarisbrick looks perfect. Giano (talk) 17:31, 29 July 2016 (UTC)
"Nice and pleasing"? To me, Adare looks like the offspring of the mating of the Glasgow University Main Building and a Soviet power station. ‑ Iridescent 23:12, 29 July 2016 (UTC)
All architecture has something pleasing about it Iridescent; sometimes one just has to look a little harder to find it. Adare looks to have some very nice Gothic features there and some tricky bits of structural design - whoever designed it knew what they were doing. I think it's quite accomplished. Giano (talk) 16:33, 30 July 2016 (UTC)
"All architecture has something pleasing about it"—I take it you've never visited Cumbernauld? ‑ Iridescent 15:45, 31 July 2016 (UTC)
Funnily enough, no, I haven't. There is a certain je ne sais quoi about it though, isn't there. Somebody had some fun designing it though. It probably looked very exciting at the time - sort of Brutalism meets the Wombles. Giano (talk) 17:58, 31 July 2016 (UTC)
I'd really like to know what Giano can wax lyrical about the Brooklands estate on Jaywick, then. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 16:33, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

Philip Hepworth[edit]

You will never believe who took this photograph!

Hi Giano. An article I wrote today is about an architect and I though you would be a good person to ask for advice. Would you have time to have a look and see what you think? The article is Philip Hepworth. If you like solving mysteries, there is also the following: (i) which birth year is correct? and (ii) did he work on Trowbridge Town Hall? The de-wiki article claims this, but I think it is wrong and sources are confusing this with the (Wiltshire) County Town Hall (in Trowbridge). I am tempted to go and photograph the Lloyds Bank in Southwark as an example of his work, but that might be going too far... (despite carefully looking at the pictures from Southwark on Commons, it seems no-one has bothered to photograph the Lloyds Bank yet). Carcharoth (talk) 00:18, 7 August 2016 (UTC)

Sorry Carcharoth I'm awaying from home - and still am, therefore I only have access to what little information is on the internet - the same as everyone other. So can't be much help. Giano (talk) 10:26, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
No problem. Thanks for the reply and enjoy being away! (Hopefully it is a holiday of some kind.) Carcharoth (talk) 10:27, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
Hope you are having a ball. I just got back from the North of Highlands Campground on Cape Cod. Lovely place. We managed to secure a beach fire permit for August 12, the peak night of the Persid Meteor Shower. It was very ideal to look northeast from the beach. The meteors were coming from a point in the sky about 30 degrees above the horizon (at 11pm), about one per minute. Quite impressive. Jehochman Talk 14:32, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
I hope you're chilling out aboard the Scrotum IV. Have you completely stopped reading your mail? :-( Bishonen | talk 20:38, 18 August 2016 (UTC).
  • My nephew is an extremely busy and important man; you can't expect him to keep checking his emails every five minutes like an excited teenager on heat. However, since you ask, my whole family has joined me an extended cruise aboard Scrotum IV around the Mediterranean's sun kissed islands. We will be picking up mail when we reach Zakynthos later today. The Lady Catherine de Burgh (talk) 09:17, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

Dyrham Park[edit]

Hi, I'm just expanding (and providing some references to) a largely unreferenced article on Dyrham Park. If you had any interest or sources and could help with the architectural description that would be great. I'm having particular issues with the east and west fronts which are different eras and by different architects.— Rod talk 11:01, 27 August 2016 (UTC)

Thank you Rod, sorry for the delay in getting back to you, but I am now returnedinng for a few days. I do know Dyrham and visited it last year under its scaffolding - fascinating place. I have the NT guide book and one or two other books which may be of uses. Tell me what wants referencing and I'll try to find one. Will take a look later when I have dealt with all the ridiculous rubbish going on below. Quite frankly having to wade into arguments with useless waste of spaces such as User:Kelly really is discouraging to trying to create content. Giano (talk) 11:43, 10 September 2016 (UTC)
Thanks - no rush. I'm having problems getting my head around (and therefore explaining in the article) the development from the old tudor house to adding the west & east ranges at different periods. Since I wrote this I've acquired a copy of the NT handbook which is basically a walk though the rooms and their decorations, but does have a nice cutaway diagram at the front. I'm also not sure the picture captions of the east and west fronts match the descriptions.— Rod talk 11:51, 10 September 2016 (UTC)

Olga is now suitably attired in a FUR, so she is safe to appear publicly in polite society (i.e mainspace) but with her stylish new FUR one never knows whether or not she'll be asked to vacate play space (ie. sandboxes).
