A Jamesian Norfolk country house

I took this photo at the National Trust’s 15th-century Oxburgh Hall recently, and liked the reflection of the house in the water and the angularity of the moat’s lines.

I was also taken with the appearance of the two dark figures on the far side of the path, which put me in mind of any number of M. R. James stories.

But then again, most things do.
