I hadn't realised but on the day I visited I would be treated to a brass band playing in front of the house. With the sun shining and the music playing it was a great moment to sit on the lawn and eat ice-cream.
Of course I can't visit a place like this without doing some plastics spotting. What caught my eye on this occasion was a gravel path that travelled up a slope.
The rigid honeycomb grid of polypropylene holds the aggregate in place and creates a stable ground that is strong enough to take light traffic including pedestrians and cyclists.
