The front entrance of the Manor House – the main building in our new home.
(the “well” feature in the middle of the car park was later removed).

A view of the Manor House from the rose garden. The six garden beds were each planted with nine “Peace” rose bushes. Looking out from the Manor House, across the rose garden, the view was of spacious field and woodland. A truly serene place! The sundial in the foreground had five gnomons on its plate for different places around the world.
