Another beautiful shot by @monalogue, this time of Deans Court in Dorset.
Thought originally to have been built in the 8th century for the Abbess of Wimborne, the house became the Deanery to Wimborne Minster in the mid 10th century, and a family home in the mid 16th century.
The fine redbrick structure was built in 1725, around the Saxon hall, with some Renaissance stained glass still surviving. Set in 13 acres of partly wild gardens with Saxon monastery stewpond, mature trees, trout stream, herb garden and serpentine-walled kitchen garden. Gardens open under National Gardens Scheme with teas & lunches served in the cafe.
