Kenwood: Wood Lane and "ting".

Blog "readah" D Aston had business in the St George's Hill area last year, and couldn't resist a visit to the titular pile. He also got a photo of the sign for Wood Lane, upon which Kenwood squats, though whether there was a sign there in the shikshtiesh I know not.
Further evidence of the work that's been going on in the house and grounds for the last couple of years, and strange to think that, although it's certainly Kenwood, none of the portion of the house visible here existed in John's time:

The photographer is standing on the exact spot once occupied by the gypsy caravan; compare with the pic HERE.
I wonder what they are up to on the site of the old swimming pool. Maybe Joe Baiardi's latest video will shed some light:

Thanks to Mr Aston for sending his pics in.

  1. Sorry it's taken so long to post my video. Will get to it soon. I have shot new footage of the old pool area and the new waterfall.
