Leaving the road we head along the tree-lined track around the edge of the estate.

The Lake

The view of the lake is disappointing.

The gardens around the estate appear to be between seasons.

Some interesting carvings as we leave the woods behind.

More carvings.

A pretty looking building.

Knott Garden

The knott garden is well maintained.

The 'castle' isn't as well maintained.
