TL8646 : Ha-ha at Melford Hall

taken 5 years ago, near to Long Melford, Suffolk, Great Britain

Ha-ha at Melford Hall
Ha-ha at Melford Hall
Melford Hall was built at the start of the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, although little of the Elizabethan work survives inside, not helped by a fire in 1942 which destroyed much of the North Wing. Beatrix Potter was a frequent visitor to the house and set many scenes in her books here.

This view in the garden looks across the ha-ha at the front of the house to the park. A ha-ha enables uninterrupted views from the house across the park without deer being able to enter the grounds and gardens around the house. See LinkExternal link for more information about ha-has.
