NT2573 : Parliament Hall

taken 4 years ago, near to Edinburgh, Great Britain

Parliament Hall
Parliament Hall
Until the Union of Parliaments in 1707, this was where the Parliament of Scotland met. The building was designed by Sir James Murray and dates from 1632-1640, and the great hammer-beam ceiling was built in 1637-9 by John Scott, master wright to the Town of Edinburgh. This is the view looking south towards the great stained-glass window, which is looking rather washed-out in this shot because of the sunlight.
