On the right is a photograph of the Rookery, when its conversion to the Rockery as we know it now, was proceeding. The work carried out during the years 1935 and 1936. Previously there was a bowling green on the present site of the pond, and beyond stretched an untidy bank supporting the railway. The adjoining house, to the south, was for some years known as the Rookery, so it is possible that this land was once part of the grounds of that house.
