flowers in the walled garden

the main house seen over the pond

an impressive gate near the pond

newt in the pond - but I don't think it's a great crested newt unless it's a very young one

the restored watermill

the internal mechanism for grinding grain

the mill wheel

a close up shot of the wheel

rain falling into the pond on the return route

a muddy backwater
