Autumn Walk in Queensdown Warren Kent

Hi folks.
Welcome to our walk in the woods on this fine autumnal day.

Across the road across the road and into the woods with leaves everywhere.

The lodge at the end of the lane.

Yaugher Manor all on its own on the North Downs. 1566 is on the porch.

The Major that owned the property was not keen on it being situated at the bottom of the valley. He had it dismantled and moved in 1841 to where it stands today, at the top of the hill. It is Tudor in style and construction.

Three views of the woods whilst we looked for Fungi.

Spot the sipder on the leaf.

A lone Magpie Inkcap, about to melt.

Could be a Two-toned Wood-tuft if my book is correct.

Glad you joined me on our woodland jaunt. All the best, Mike


  1. that Manor was a customer of mine. Lovely òld building. One of the oldest in the area. Glorious photos.

    1. I thought it would be as I noticed certain security features around the area, I would have loved to have been able to look inside. Shame I do not do what I used to do otherwise I might have got an invite in, HI.
      One of my loves being in the trade was to visit these old properties and be able to look around each and every room doing the job I loved. If only that company that took over had been more contentious I would have retired on a much better pension than I get now.

  2. Ok Mike.well on one occasion I was called out to that place at 4am to find the burglar passing me at high speed comming out. Long ladder left up to next floor. Some years ago now. Well my private pension collapsed just before maturity by 75℅. So it's peanuts.

  3. lovely photos and such a lovely find. This place has 7 bedrooms and from what I have seen on the web its rented out for 2 grand a month and the value that I saw was 2 million. If I won the lottery Then thats the sort of place I would love to live in

  4. Bit out in the sticks for us. Thanks for the comment.
