The Tower seen from near the Moat. There was a medieal well to the left in the foreground of this picture. It was filled in, in 1936.
Two months later and the view is very different in June
... and again in August. It's difficult to get a cut like this at home however help with choosing a mower is available here.
The Tower backlit against the late afternoon June sunshine
This corner of the Orchard is just behind the South Cottage
The Gazebo can be seen in the background.
The Priest's House is in the background of this picture.
The Orchard in spring. Note the 'bell' towers of the Oast House in the background. Oast houses were used for drying hops - this part of Kent is still a strong hop growing area although far less so than in the past. And the technology for drying hops has made their use redundant.
The Gazebo, a relatively new addition to the garden, built in 1969.
