The ruins of Nymans house

This view of Nymans house was taken about 20 years after the fire and would have been easily recognisable by Colonel Messel from the days when he lived there before the terrible day of 19th February 1947.
The view of the house is not that different today. The castellated yew hedge on the left is still there but the tall parts are now somewhat wider thereby restricting the view of the dovecote.
The major difference, though, was caused by the Great Storm of 16th October 1987 which bought down the 100-year-old Monkey Puzzle tree on the right (see picture #1131).
