I posted the first lot of pics of Godolphin House a couple a weeks ago and this is part two, this time concentrating on the garden. It's 700 years old although how much is original is hard to say - the stonework certainly looks it and probably is. This was late October 2008.
Anyway, the first three were all taken around the entrance to the house. Paths, old granite steps, beautiful aged stonework.
I was fascinated by this raised path that you can just see over the wall.
And here it is from the top.
Borders. This was the end of Oct. but there was still a certain stark beauty all around.
The kitchen garden.
I love these old stone steps built to fit around the base of this tree.
And this lovely little stone trough, hidden away.
An old barn.
More beautiful steps.
I like to think that people who've lived in the house used this as a trysting place. :-)
