On the southern edge of EB’s Conservation Area, with fields on three sides -a windy site usually 10 days behind more protected village gardens. The layout is L shaped to the south and west with a more sheltered courtyard facing east; basic design done in the ‘60s and ‘70s, with borders and a lot of grass. There is a small orchard (apples, damson, quince, walnut).
The planting favours rabbit resistance and self-sown plants.
The current occupants, both in their eighties, do all the mowing and gardening, except for field hedges and ladder work, so it is not a perfectionist’s garden.
