Chenies Manor House and gardens.

Our hope does not cause us to become ashamed; because the love of God is spread from our hearts to your hearts carried by the Holy Spirit which is given to us.

Romans 5: 5
Chenies, a Manor House in Buckinghamshire as seen from the white garden. This home is a Tudor grade 1 listed building started in 1460 . It has been owned by the Macleod Matthews family since 1956. The house and gardens are still enjoyed by the family but open to the public on certain days in the summer.
Notice that all the windows on the side facing London ( about 30 miles away) have been bricked in. A doctor staying at Chenies at the start of the Black death advised this because he didn’t want the Black death to be carried on the wind through the windows.
The chimneys, tall and stately, above the roof were admired by King Henry viii who got the same builder to do him some at Hampton Court London. (the home of Henry viii )

The formal gardens

I thought I would say thank you for looking at my post with the words of this song “In an English Country Garden” as sung by Nana Mouskouri. Just press on the link below. I hope you are blessed whenever you read this.
