During October we posted multiple images across our social media channels including these four stunning pictures of the week. From a historic manor house to a popular brewery site, these images offer a unique perspective on some of the UK’s most fascinating landmarks.
Home of Paul McCartney: High Park Farm, Campbeltown (1980)
This farm in Campbeltown, Scotland, has been home to Beatles legend Paul McCartney since 1966. It was also the inspiration for his number-one hit song, “Mull of Kintyre”. The photo, taken in 1980, shows the farm in all its rural glory, with the Mull of Kintyre peninsula in the background.
Reality TV: Viola House, Midhurst, West Sussex (1982)
This charming 18th-century manor house was recently used as the setting for the popular dating show, “My Mum, Your Dad”. The photo, taken in 1982, captures the beauty of the house and its surrounding gardens, with the rolling hills of the South Downs in the distance.
Landmark: Tetley’s Brewery, Leeds (1975)
This iconic art-deco HQ, which stood at the centre of the Tetley’s Brewery site in Leeds, will be closing its doors on December 17, 2023. The photo, taken in 1975, shows the brewery at its height, with production still in full swing. The future of the building remains unclear, but the current owner has pledged to keep it at the centre of an ambitious community-orientated redevelopment.
Haunted House: Llancaiach Fawr Manor, Wales (1975)
This manor house in Wales is said to be one of the most haunted places in the UK, with reports of paranormal activity dating back centuries. Visitors have claimed to see ghostly apparitions, hear disembodied voices, and even feel the touch of unseen hands. The photo, taken in 1975, shows the manor house in its imposing Gothic glory, with a dark and atmospheric sky overhead.
