Kinfauns: c. late 1990s.

Nick also got a few photos of Kinfauns, shortly before it was destroyed to make way for a carbuncle. Above, the drive (the only part that remains the same these days. The whole section of garden visible through the gate has been sold to allow construction of another new house).
Below, inside the gate, looking down towards t'bungalow:

To wit:

I wonder how long it took the owner after George to whitewash the walls. Though not often. Apparently, before moving to Friar Park, George offered to give Kinfauns to Pete Shotton, who said "Naaaah":

Some you know wots:

And again:

Note how much of George's gardening remained at that point:

And now nothing does. Toodle pip!

Fanks, yet again, to Nick Cowburn for his generosity.
