A Week on the Estate: Twin Calves, Thrifty Cottages & Virtual Architecture
Spring is well and truly springing on the estate this week, with much good news to celebrate. The lawn had its first trim of the year and we enjoyed the evocative smell of freshly cut grass.
In benign, blue-sky weather, we applied fertiliser to our winter wheat crop to help make up for the slow start to the season caused by a very wet winter. Local tree surgeon Andy Hackett was pictured using a ‘spider’ platform – a four-limbed, stable support for a very tall cherry-picker – so that he could work safely at height while maintaining our tall trees on the North Drive.
