Photographer's Note

a panorama shot of Castle Howard.
Some of Yorkshire's best-kept secrets lie in the rolling Howardian Hills between Malton and Thirsk, home of Castle Howard which is one of the most famous landmarks of the North Yorkshire countryside.
Even when it was built, it took more than a century to complete, spanning the lifetimes of three Earls and countless architects and craftsmen who dedicated themselves to the extraordinary work of art.
That beauty was marred by a devastating fire in 1940, which destroyed the dome and over 20 rooms. For over twenty years the dome was unroofed, but by 1962 repairs had been completed. In the meantime, Castle Howard was opened to the public (1952). In 1982 the appeal of Castle Howard was further enhanced when it was chosen as the setting for the television production of Evelyn Waugh's novel Brideshead Revisted. A permanent exhbition relating to the filming of the television series can be seen by visitors to the house.
