    Update to my previous report (April 2010) -

    Since posting my original report in the new members forum several weeks ago, I have recieved additional images from forum member Jean.Sullivan (Thanks Jean:-))


    Some brief factoids (From wiki) -

    "Windlestone Hall is a 19th century country house in the ownership of Durham County Council, situated near Rushyford.

    The house was the birthplace in 1897 of Prime Minister Anthony Eden.

    The house and estate were utilised as a Prisoner of war Camp during World War II. Between 1957 and 2006, it was occupied by Windlestone Hall School, a local authority residential special school."



    Thanks again to Jean for the additional images. A revisit is on ther cards, so hopefully I can update this topic later with some more comparative shots.

    Comments welcomed.

    Gardens and fountain - As far as I can tell, this area has been completely removoved. A basketball court now stands to the right of what was once part of the ornamental garden.
