My Sunday Photo – 26th August 2017

silhouette of two children in a dark tunnel

For this week’s Sunday photo I’ve chosen another one from our visit to Hanbury Hall.
This is two of my children in the snob’s tunnel. I wasn’t sure what a snobs tunnel was so I looked it up. Apparently, it was so the gentry of the household could sit and enjoy the garden without having to see the servants running back and forth from the vegetable garden to kitchen. Now, you wouldn’t want a maid to spoil your lovely garden view, would you! Snobs indeed. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the pleasure of going through the tunnel myself, maybe I’m a snob, or maybe it was just a bit too wet and muddy for my wheelchair. I’ll let you decide.

(Disclosure; This photo was taken by my hubby not me.)

I pin My Sunday Photo pics I visit on my Pinterest Board. Please let me know if you wish your photo to be removed.

    Great photo, it looks almost like a photo. That really is the ultimate in snobbery! Imagine having a tunnel built just so you wouldn't have to look at your servants, crazy!

    That's a fabulous shot. I love the silhouettes at the end of the tunnel. We came across one of these when we visited Uppark 🙂

    I love details like these at stately homes. I think I would rather see the servants than a dark tunnel!
