Bluebell Woods - at The Hermitage, Standish. by Rev David Long (Sony SLT-A65V)
The bare, raised patch at the back are the ruins of the house - the former presbytery for the priests serving Standish Hall Chapel and St Marie's RC Church.

I always think this place would be a good places to go and dig up old bottles if you knew where they had there dump.
Last year I picked up two old broken roof slates from there, which are now used by the frogs as hopping in and out point in our fish pond
