A view of the 'new' building
Looking past the boys entrance of
the original house to the 'new building' erected after the fire on one of the country's
finest Palladian terraces & gardens. And ex-pupil described it thus ...
"The terrace, built level with the house and supported at the southern end by a massive wall, was still kept as the old 18th century design - a fountain, a parterrre of small beds, a central gate and steps leading down to a wide bricked path going towards the stables. It was full of flowers - aconites and snow drops began the winter cycle, through daffodils and bluebells to cherry trees in spring, to old roses in summer. On hot days, those fortunate to have the drawing room as a form room could open the french window doors and the scent of flowers and mown grass would be the background to lessons."
