Belton House Orangery & Gardens
Updated: Nov 12, 2022
Last week I visited the very beautiful gardens and Orangery of Belton House in Lincolnshire, a country estate with formal Italian and Dutch gardens, a deer park, lake, and a Orangery. It was a fleeting visit, but I will return next year when I have more time.

Since being transported back to Italy whilst recently visiting the Italian Gardens of Renishaw Hall, I have been visiting other venues with Italian gardens before the light deteriorates too much.
On the morning of my visit the light was relatively flat with the occasional pop of light when grey cloud was replaced with thin white could. Not having used film other than in the Summertime, I was not sure how it would fare. Some in this collection somewhat lack lustre. I plan to revisit in the Summertime when the gardens are awash with colour, and the light will be more suitable for film.
The Orangery was designed by Wyatville and built in 1819, and it is the Centrepiece to the Italian Gardens at Belton House.
The gardeners were digging up the Dahlia's to dry them out over the Winter, as are many of my florist friends - a huge undertaking. The fountain feature was without water too, but still very beautiful to see and photograph.
