Artist's Description

I don’t normally work in B/W, although I do love seeing the work of others using this medium. However, Richard Veal threw down the gauntlet, and so I just had to respond. (LOL!) So Richard, this one is just for you…

Groombridge Place Gardens & Enchanted Forest, as its name suggests, is in the little village of Groombridge, near Tunbridge Wells in Kent.

It was the beautiful stage for the lavish 2005 film adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic story of love and social mores, Pride and Prejudice. The 17th-century moated manor was chosen to be Longbourn, the Bennet’s family home, because (in the words of the film’s location manager), “This house has immense charm and is untouched by redevelopment.” Scenes were shot around the lake and gardens, as well as inside the house and an exhibition records the experience, including photographs of Elizabeth Bennet (Keira Knightley) and Mr Darcy (Matthew Macfadyen) in action.

The film was directed by Joe Wright
