Great Royaldevon 2018-01-14 8:05

Hello Gert,

This is a very magnificent building but seems incongruous with the dry, sandy forefront. Such buildings usually have gardens, flowers and maybe, fountains to add to their impressive appearance.
I suppose that now the high fence has superseded this plain frontage.
In some ways, I think we have been lucky to see interesting features before the threat of terrorism or vandalism became a problem. (I have a photograph of me and my husband leaning against Stonehenge, now, it is all fenced off!

The tall tree is well placed in the f/g corner, creating a good sense of depth and makes an effective, diagonal link with the massive, central dome. The details are sharply captured with further close-ups in your w/s.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Default To Royaldevon: garden

Thank you Bev,
Looking at more recent photos from here, there is a large garden to the right outside my photo. I don't remember if it was there 45 years ago. The area closest to the building seems to be the same, but I have no idea why. Security reasons? Trespassers should be seen before they come too close?
Kind regards,
