Easton Walled Garden 1/10

The Easton Estate is a traditional rural estate, set in the rolling countryside of the Lincolnshire/Rutland borders, between Stamford and Grantham. Owned and managed by the Cholmeley family since 1561 the site of the old Hall and its surviving buildings is now a thriving tourist attraction as Easton Walled Gardens.

 

Thanks for your kind comments while we were away in deepest Cambridgeshire last week, my late friends funeral service was very nice, it was good to see my other friends and their wives, albeit on a sad occasion, and Tony's wife Jenny is holding up very well, with him having had Dementia she sort of lost him a long time ago I suppose.

Beginning this series with a Wow shot, Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks ray, shame it was such a dull day.
A lovely old estate!
Brian Walbey: There is some nice gardens and grounds there as this series will show.
Very typically English, Brian, it must take a lot of people to maintain it to this standard.
Brian Walbey: This is just one small corner Frank.
Oh, WOW, Brian. I can't even begin to imagine living there!

That's the thing about dementia, indeed. You already lose them on many levels long before they're finally gone.
Brian Walbey: The main house has been knocked down, this is just the outbuildings. Maureens dad suffered from Dementia for several years, it was heartbreaking to see him.

Reminiscent of a small Tower of London, Brian
Brian Walbey: The main house has been knocked down, this is just the outbuildings.

What you say about losing people with dementia before they die is so true Brian

This looks to be a lovely place, an area we visited last week
Brian Walbey: Maureens Dad suffered from Dementia for several years, it was heartbreaking to see him. Yes I read that you were round the Melton area, I hope you enjoyed the area, there is some fine countryside about.

A fine looking place Brian.

Dementia is such a cruel illness

Something of the Tower in that one part. I can just think it must be something special to have a place like this for so long in the family.
Brian Walbey: The main house has been knocked down, this is just the outbuildings. I'll bet the main house was something special.
The lawn mower is taking a break before tackling under the trees. Very nice!
Brian Walbey: There's acres of lawn to be mowed at Easton.

What a beautiful, magnificent castle! I love the rhododendron bushes.
Brian Walbey: The main house has been knocked down, this is just the outbuildings.
I'll have to look up the place.
Brian Walbey: It's quite a nice place to walk round, but we didn't have the best of weather for Spring Bank Holiday.

So "Cholmeley" is an actual family name and not some Monty Python creation. It looks the sort of place that costs a fortune to heat and to maintain; I suppose opening the estate helps to generate some much needed income.
Brian Walbey: The main house has been knocked down, this is just the outbuildings, still costs a lot to upkeep though I guess.
