Sandstone Romance in Herefordshire

Instinct tells me to begin exploring a garden at the house so I was frustrated to be marshaled in the opposite direction, through a lych gate and down onto a deserted grass tennis court. A dry rill encircling an overly-large stone seat changed that as it continued down the valley to a pergola-ringed pool and on to a Florentine Garden with loggia and plinths for long lost statues. Arts and Crafts has been rare in Herefordshire so far and How Caple Court is unique stretching down into a hidden valley, constructed from local red sandstone that is balanced on the point between romantic neglect and decay.
