How it looked in 1997.  Some new shutters since then!

Gillian contemplates a sphere

And gets ready for tea.

Looking towards the front gate

The entrance in 1997

The houses from below

The north lawn

Front view from below in 1997.  The right linden tree was lost to the storm of christmas 1999.

A shady spot

Afternoon dining area.

Summer flowers in the auges

The lower field in summer
