The 1802 stone has clearly been saved from the ruin, and the 1952 plaque modelled on it. Nicely done. The close-up picture was taken from the centre of the little roundabout and the scent from the roses was delightful. With so little traffic you could close your eyes and be transported to a country cottage garden.
