In the old days you would have passed through the porte cochère of the gatehouse (see: On my doorstep – Gatehouse to a grand estate), over the stone bridge in the foreground (see also: On my doorstep – Old Stone Bridge) and along this road up to the main house.

Nowadays the main entrance is on the opposite side of the property. For a long time the owners did not maintain this area and it became almost completely overgrown. The road became almost impassible because of the numerous fallen trees. Some time back, however, they undertook a major effort to clean up the property and it now seems to be in much better shape.
