Let’s have an Orangery!!
One of our dreams, which is now rapidly becoming a reality, was to build an Orangery.
Bringing the outside, inside.
So, we measured, dug, drew and planned. Now we have the footings down and over the next 2 weeks you will see the frame take shape.
Amazingly, on starting to prepare the outside wall we found the same beautiful sandstone blocks, full of character with many a story to tell.
This area should seat at least 35 people comfortably and will be a welcome haven for dog walkers, ramblers and cyclists (Yes, there will be a bike rack outside too!)
Interestingly, while digging the footings, we found some amazing old bottles. These will eventually be on display in our Library room…………….but we’ll post pictures next week!
