Inspirational Obscurae Midlands Obscurae

The Decagonal Pyramid Obscura of Ingestre House

Another Camera Obscura in the West Midlands! Once you start scratching the surface they're everywhere!


This beauty was built by Aaron Chetwynd Architects as part of the Ingestre Follies heritage trail at Ingestre Hall near Stafford. The architect's photos are from 2010 and it popped up in my Instagram feed today so it's definitely still there.



While this is a permanent structure we really like the simplicity of the pyramid design. It's something we've been thinking of for when we do our temporary Oscura Sheds in 2017
