gardens and trees neglected driveway
In a sorry state - the building, the front garden and drive.

The last tree felled, lies down onto the former garden, and bricks from demolition of a building behind now spread to widen the access drive.

Bricks from internal walls, some of which have been removed from the Memorial Clinic.

One from Wright & Co, from Albion works, Sileby, Liecester, the Wains Heather from Andrew Wains Brickworks, Mill Lane Heather, Ashby de la Zouch, from when the house was first built.
