Melford Hall is owned by the National Trust and has opened to the public again after its winter respite. The hall is located in the town of Long Melford in Suffolk, just off the A134. There are photo opportunities both inside the house and outside in the gardens.

The whole environment at Melford Hall feels more relaxed than at many stately homes, notable by the fact you can sit on some of the furniture and even take tea in one of the rooms outside of the cafe. You can take photographs so long as you don't use flash, so I took my 28 f1.8 and Canon 5D2 with me for this trip. Normally I'd take my 50 f1.4, but I was keen at times to have the option to include more of the room.
The hall is filled with objects beautifully illuminated in the natural light.
