Free Chase, Warninglid - Gardens Open Day

I took a series of slide photographs of Free Chase in 1963 when I went there on an Open Day with my parents.
My mother spent a magical holiday there when she was about ten or eleven. I think it would have been while George Berney was on his last trip to India. She recalled the butler on the terrace, every morning, calling the birds with a whistle, and feeding them out of his hand. She spent a lifetime trying to emulate him, with little success!
Her father was H. Valentine Geere, editor of George Berney’s “The Near East”. (See picture #1533).
Four of my photographs are available to view; the others can be viewed by selecting Large Version and Open Document.
