Sunday I went to see one of my fav castle ruins again.. And its devastating. Good thing is, its bricked again, so no one can get inside, but the fences are starting to disappear. We met an old man there - its hard to find info online - he told us he saw it in all its glory b4 the war.. then after the 70s ppl moved out and just didnt lock it properly. So robberies started.. Then it was still in good shape, until, one day, teens climbed to roof and kicked all the little (neo-tudor) battlements into the middle of the roof til it collapsed from the weight down to the 1st floor. There are always ppl who want to buy it, but the owner refuses. Soon it will all be gone.. I HATE this, and people! 😭
Where to begin?! Building work is starting in mid March and so we used the summer to get started with the end of the garden. This is what we were dealing with. You couldn’t walk further than the summer house, which was unfortunately rotten. Many trees to take down and there were also two ponds to drain and fill.
