Great Storm at Nymans walled garden

The walled garden at Nymans seems to have not been too badly effected by the Great Storm, but those trees beyond have been badly damaged.
Other pictures of the fountain in the walled garden can be seen on picture #394.
The Large Version shows the extensive lawns next to the ruins of Nymans house with the dovecote in the distance. The multi-stemmed Lebanon Cedar, just left of centre, has lost some of its branches, but it still survives today, albeit with a cluster of stumps where it lost some of its limbs.
To the right are the remains of a large tree brought down in the storm.
My mother, Nora Ray, looks tiny compared to the vast, but somewhat reduced, size of the cedar.
