I'm pleased that you have enjoyed watching some of our residents who no doubt take a pride in their actions!
As this is so close to home I went to try and record the bad weather, so I'm happy that you have enjoyed a different side of our culture here!
Thank you for your keen interest in part of our cultural heritage. It was a surprisingly nice day for the end of September!
Thanks for the info on the spots, I must admit I hadn't noticed.
Thank you for your visit, and keen observations. I pondered the same question when I took it at 11:53hrs on 10 November. From the dim and distant past I remembered that it is necessary to add (or subtract) a correction to the time shown according to the day of the year to allow for the Earths orbit being an ellipse, and the tilt of the Earths axis. On this day the calculated correction puts the sundial 16 minutes fast. Therefore we can say that the design of the sundial is spot on, which I suppose is hardly surprising since it is in Cambridge University!
Hello Peter yes indeed i am sure that would be possible for a lighter person :))
best wishes .. steve
Hello Peter thank you again .. there would certainly be plenty of places for them to hide on this 45,000 acre estate :))

Hi Peter Thanks for welcome comments tis was on the way home after a day hill walking on the Lake District Hills.Best wishes Alan.
Peter, you are most kind to praise my photos and most modest about your own photography skills. I went to Kansai region of Japan 43 years ago as a lad and this is really my first chance to do any photography in Kyoto. While the scenery was quite stunning, the photography was difficult due to the massive crowds during the "autumn maple season". Anyway, I tried my best and there will be more coming since I always upload photos slowly. Best regards, David.
I really like the setting here, with such nice autumn colours!!
