I read this weekend’s photo challenge – foreshadow just before we left for a weekend break. I couldn’t think of anything that would fit so put it all to the back of my mind and set off to enjoy our trip to Derbyshire. When we visited Calke Abbey “the un-stately home” foreshadow kept popping back into my head. I took this picture in the kitchens which were abandoned by the family in the 1920s when cost cutting meant there were no longer enough servants to run it. It seemed to me the abandoned kitchens foreshadowed what was to come. Gradually more and more rooms were closed off because the family couldn’t afford to run them, until the 1980s when the house was given to the National Trust to settle death duties. The house today is fascinating because The National Trust have preserved it in the state it was in when it came to them rather than restoring it to its original glory, not something we often see.
