Battle Abbey.
Founded in 1070 by William of Normandy to placate Pope Alexander II for the slaughter he caused during the invasion of England in 1066. This structure consists of the monks dormitory on the 1st floor with commons and warming rooms in the undercroft. The remains in the foreground consist of the parlour and kitchen, much of the masonry was plundered
after the dissolution, mostly to build a country mansion on the site which is now a school for girls. Some of the abbey buildings were incorporated into the house including the abbots hall which is occasionally open to the public.
The abbey was dedicated to St Martin the church is now only an outline of its foundations where the alter once stood is a plaque commemorating where King Arthur was killed in battle.
In 1989 Black Sabbath made their music video on the 1st floor of this building to the title track of their album Headless Cross found here    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bOXvhET0Y98 I wonder how many would be's have played air guitar to that guitar solo in their bedrooms.

Tulips called Kings Blood, the name must reflect the richness of the colour.

Wisteria.
120ft pergola covered in four varieties of wisteria now forming a rather dark tunnel. I tried several angles but this worked the best I felt it gave the best perspective and included the Chinese lantern, as I was lining up the shot a young lady entered the scene just at the right moment to add some more interest and give a sense of scale.

Giant Vipers Bugloss (Echium pininana)

Native to La Palma in the Canary Islands it has been introduced to the UK and is tolerant of the climate in the South, planted in the right sheltered spot it can reach a height of 12-13 ft a great deal taller than our native variety.

Sheffield Park House.

Sheffield Park as an estate is mentioned in the Domesday Book. In August 1538, Thomas Howard, 3rd Duke of Norfolk, entertained Henry VIII here. By 1700, the Deer Park had been partially formalised by Lord De La Warr who planted avenues of trees radiating from the house and cleared areas to establish lawns. In the late 1700s, James Wyatt remodelled the house in the fashionable Gothic style and Capability Brown was commissioned to landscape the garden. The original four lakes form the centrepiece. Humphry Repton followed Brown in 1789–1790. In 1796, the estate was sold to John Holroyd, created Baron Sheffield in 1781. It is particularly noted for its plantings of trees selected for autumn colour,
