The outside of the castle

We spent a couple of hours one morning wandering around outside the castle.  Here's the front of it.  (Can you see Alan and Coop down in front of the door?)
It may look familiar -- it was the setting for the 1999 movie The Haunting.

And a view of the gate, from the front of the castle.

Lots of lion statutes around:

This is the side of the castle.  The low part with white windows to the bottom right of the photo is the Conservatory.
(Cooper took this piture, which is why we're blurring and a bit off-kilter.)

This is the Gate House.  It spans the drive leading up to the castle, and it actually has two apartments in it.

From the other side of the Gate House, looking up the long drive to the castle:

And the Carriage House, which was once a home for horses, but is now extra living space for students and faculty.

Coop and I making the trek back up to the castle.

And a picture from a different day, when the sun was shining and the lawn was frosted over a bit:
