Spring Equinox

Stonewalling, Woodthorpe Hall, Derbyshire

Stonewalling at Woodthorpe on 21st - and marvellous it is too. They are also going to replace the mock Gothic gate that hung here. You can see another at the back. I think they were made by a previous Shepley sometime early in the twentieth century but I can't remember where I read this. I hope they are as lovely.

Chiffchaffs are heralding the Spring.

  1. Really pleased they're going to replace the gates, hopefully with something as stunning. I'd been noting their demise with dismay over recent years. They were really something when I were a lad. Ian
