Who lives in a big house like this?
Beside these delightful ruins was a pond - a small pond where I had the feeling and hope that Crucian Carp would live. There were definitely fish there as I could see the odd dimple and a Kingfisher was hunting the margins. Crucian's are present in many of the small ponds around this site of antiquity, but I don't think English Heritage would be too keen on me whiling away an hour or two watching my float! An all together lovely spot. What a fireplace! It's the sort of chimney you could hide and lose things. No problem in sending the sweep up there.
