This is a second rhapsody of images from our time at Knightstone. I hope they will evoke some memories for those of you who have been with us and inspire those of you who will have it as a home or visit it in the future.

This part of the garden was originally the playground for Eric and Mikee

Our breakfast room has fulfilled many functions. It served as a party room for the kids, a place for studying and the family’s casual dining room.
