This photograph is ‘The Long Room’ at Sudbury Hall. Back then, 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 beautiful room is one of the most stunning features of Sudbury Hall and is a massive 167 feet long.
Being the hopeless romantic that I am, 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.
This photograph, as with most of my favourite photos, was taken quite by chance when I noticed the afternoon light coming in so beautifully through the window. I love the champagne and white vintage lace hues it creates and when I look at it, I feel an enormous sense of peace and serenity. It is so exquisite to me and although not haunting, there is something else that comes through…sadness maybe. Its simplicity is its beauty and it’s brilliant.
