Greys Court

Greys court is a Tudor country house which is situated not far from Henley and only up the road from where I live. I had heard of the place but had never visted till now. I went along with my wife one Sunday and was impressed with what I saw. All the photos today are from the outside as we were not allowed to take any photos inside..

  This is a stitch photo of one of the buildings through the arch

 This part was closed of to people for H&S reasons

These are part of the outer walls of the house as it was a defended manor house. The tower I thought was from a church but it was one of the watch towers the hose had

Part of the remaining our walls

I like the way it has been landscaped with flower beds

Nice onamental pond in the tower garden

Which as you can see was full of water lillies

Another view of Greys Court
 Anyway up the tower this way

 Back to earth and after walking round the house you come out by the plaque above

 You can see a whole load of these little flellows

on top of the wall beside the house

Side view of the house

Nice oriental bridge

 The place also has one of the few remaining donkey opperated wheels in the country, hav eto admit it is one big wheel and it is to lif water from a well

Nice deep well to fall in but don't worry it does have a cage over the top

A must for me now is stopping off for a cup of coffee.Glad to say it ws not that busy here when we visited

Well that concluds my tour of Greys Court, hope you enjoyed it. Check out the National Trust Website for more details.
