Spent many happy hours

Spent many happy hours wandering all over this estate feeding the Pheasants and Ducks to keep them around the Estate for the big Shooting days they held there. Mr A.B.Massie from Spondonwood Farm used to raise the young pheasants to release across the estate. I used to go as his Beater on the Shoot days and we used to stop for lunch in the stables behind the Hall and were supplied with huge bowls of hot soup and drinks to brace us up for the next beat. I remember them building the Nuclear Shelter underground on the hill overlooking towards the Lake, all supposed to be hush hush.
