Haddon Hall looking south-east with the River Wye to the left, a picture taken to show how the long-established view of the Hall had been 'spoiled' by the planting of saplings.

The photographer's original caption for this image explains more:

'What we are NOT fighting for. (All photos passed by Censor).


Visitors who have lost their own railings for Salvage wonder who pulls the strings at Bakewell, where miles of tall spiked railings line one side of Public Path, barbed wire, iron fences, the other for miles. Painted but not taken for salvage. They enclose miles of Haddon Hall grounds and back to Bakewell.

Photo No.2 shows to-days great alteration. From this point for 400 years people have enjoyed the famous view of Haddon Hall, Dorothy Vernon's Stone Bridge, and view along the river. To-day, thousands of newly planted Bush trees hide all [from] view except the top of Hall Chimneys. The Duke who planted them died last year. It is up to the new Duke to restore the famous view (By the way - Photos are strictly forbidden - NO WONDER). Bakewell people state that no Newspaper DARE use these Photos. To get these snaps, after being stopped by Keepers, Photographer had to return at Dawn, before they arrived, as picture of railings are not allowed'.
