Is this 'the big house' I lived near as a small child in about 1946-8, I wonder? I believe it was called Weetwood Grove. My father was a gardener for the Ballantine Family, who lived 'in the big house' set in large grounds within a wood. I believe the family owned a large factory and were very wealthy. I was transported to hospital in their Bentley after an accident in about 1947. The family definitely has at least one child, a son. We lived in quite a large gardener's cottage on the estate. There was also a lodge house at the main gates. My brother was born while we were living there.

Am I correct in assuming that there were originally two buildings which have somehow been mated with the help of the conical roofed knuckle? If so, whoever was responsible, should be commended. The result of their effort has created a rather attractive image.
