Ardress House


 Going back through some of my photos, I came across these pictures taken at Ardress House, County Armagh a few years back. A favourite pastime of mine is to visit these old mansions.  It is owned by The National Trust and open to the public.

 The old cobblestoned farmyard has antique farm equipment on display and in the outbuildings there are churns and butter presses just as the dairy would have been last century.








A thoroughly enjoyable visit!
