Photography is 3 things; art, technique and passion; blending together to create emotional and inspiring images.
This photograph is ‘The Long Room’ at Sudbury Hall. In the 17th century, women didn’t exercise. Not in the way that we do now anyway. During winter months, when it was deemed too cold for women to brave the outdoors, they would walk up and down the long room for ‘exercise’. This room is one of the most beautiful features of Sudbury Hall and is a massive 167 feet long.
It is also, notably, the room where Elizabeth first sets eyes on Darcy’s painting during the BBC’s 1996 adaptation of Pride and Prejudice which was filmed at Sudbury Hall.
