Holker Hall is home to Lord and Lady Cavendish . A country home with celebrated gardens .It was historically part of the county of Lancashire but is now part of the County of Cumbria in England .In 1536 when the land on Holker Hall came up for sale it was aquired by the Preston family who were already established land owners . Since then it has passed from the Prestons to the Lowthers and then to the Cavendishes by inheritance but it has never been sold .In 1871 the West Wing of the house containing the main family appartments was destroyed by fire . Most of the contents was lost including many of the fine paintings . The Duke had it rebuilt but on a grander style . In 1991 Holker won the Historic Houses Association garden of the year award and and in 2002 Holkers Great Lime Tree, which probably dates from the early 19th century ,was selected as one of Britains 50 great trees in honour of Queen Elizabeths Golden Jubilee .

progressed from holiday snaps to being serious about it just 3 years ago.I keep a compact camera in my handbag at all times .It is more convenient, an SLR is to heavy and complicated for me. I just like to point and shoot. I do enhance my images slightly with pseudo HDR on a single image. Now I have a hobby and a passion.
