A couple of weeks ago Christine and I went to Castle Drogo
. We were fairly lucky with the weather, so that was a bonus.
The house had a few things packed away as they were in the middle of a 6 year project to repair the roof ... by removing the old one, replacing it, and then placing another "roof" on top to protect it. I took a deap breath and went up to see the work -
Views from the grounds
Some done - some not
Up on the roof
Looking down onto another part of the roof
Ready to go exploring
In the grounds ... large seed pods
... and Christine
The formal gardens
Near the Wendy House
In the gardener's office building!
