Old Photographs

Here are  just a few photos of the garden taken over the years.


A photo of the original Warley House in its derelict state.  Probably around 1960. The house was demolished in 1964.


No way in except over the wall!  January 1994

The dead elm and a mass of wild rhododendrons.


Ivy threatening the main boundary wall.


This is now the main entrance drive!


The old kitchen garden in May 1994.


Just a little bit of rubble, note the old fence panels.
