Verlie Meek Year: 1959 Villages: WarninglidAuction sale of Colwood, Warninglid (4 of 4)
Further to picture #2228, the above photograph features the terrace at Colwood, while the Large Version shows the “lake” (more pond size, I think) with a footbridge leading to the island.
Select Open Document to view the last couple of pages of text from the auction catalogue, and also an interesting map of the estate and much of Warninglid village.
The document also includes a newspaper cutting showing judges at a Spring Flower Show at which Mrs Alice Swann won first prize for her exhibit of carnations in the table decoration class. Her husband was Alfred Swann, head gardener at Colwood, who probably had some input into the exhibit!
