By degrees, our tree is being dismantled. In view of the size, this operation has required careful planning and co-ordination. We are most grateful for the help of all concerned thus far. From time to time small piles of waste timber might be seen stacked in the grounds: please take anything that may be of use.

 St Andrews apples

The apples in the back garden are ripening. lease pick these in due course to avoid them being wasted.
