This view of the River Cray is from the terrace of the restaurant. There were a lot of ducks and geese in this area; could it be that they know where to get free food?

Crossing the river on the footbridge enables you to reach the rockery. Quite a large structure with lots of colour. Hall Place is visible through the trees in the distance.
