Madresfield Court

I visited Madresfield yesterday and  had a chance to wander the gardens and consider the defences in WW2, when the house was one of four earmarked for the Royal Family, should they have had to have left London in a hurry. Part of my grandfather’s work in the Coates Mission was to visit these houses periodically  to see that the defences were in order.

View across the outer moat.



The inner moat which goes all the way round the house.


The ha-ha.
