This is a picture we took of the garden before we purchased the house, so it is in completely unimproved condition! The Elaeagnus Pungens Maculata bush in the centre of the picture is about the only thing recognisable in the view from the same place today. The gate, apple tree, conifer and Rhododendron are all gone replaced with long herbaceous borders each side of the Long Walk.

And, looking from the other end, May 2003 here.
