We spent the afternoon at Woolbeding, an early eighteenth-century manor house which was leased in the early 1970s by Simon Sainsbury and Stewart Grimshaw and comprehensively restored, with help in the layout of the garden from Lanning Roper.

A Dutchman’s Pipe:-
The river Rother at the bottom of the garden:-
The Victorian hornbeam tunnel put in in 1876:-
An Oriental plane:-
And the cedar tree:-
