I'm not trying to sell these photos. I have extra duplicate photos for free. I would appreciate a self addressed envelope. The National Trust, the government agency that maintains Lytes Cary, is working on a full color book to be published next year. I'm excited. I was there in early April, and the hedges look great, thanks to a hedger and ditcher, two of the last such craftsmen working in England. The Yew hedges are woven the old way all by hand. Speaking of Yews, Will Light explained to me that the Yew trees over our ancestor's tomb (William Lyte about 1286, Sargeant at Law of Edward I), were planted during Henry VIII reign in all churchyards, so that a source of Yew wood for bows would be easily available during a war. Do you know anyone with a website so that we can share the fotos with others by computer?
