  3. I think I'd convert it so the top level was the live in part - would have a fantastic view of everything roundabout. It shouldn't be too difficult to screen the windows where needed. :)
  4. I would be in heaven... just would want lots of vines because, you know, peeping toms 🤣
  5. Just think - you could convert one part into living quarters and have the rest as garden lol
  6. This next video is a more in depth view of the gardens.

  10. Upon looking at this month’s most popular musical singles chart in the UK, it may seem like it is dominated by pop stars and hip hop artists – but there is now a new kind of singer that is rising to the top. A song called “Let Nature Sing” is currently ranked as the 11th most popular musical single – and it is a track that is made up entirely of bird sounds. The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds released the track last month as a means of raising awareness for vulnerable bird species. The soothing soundscape consists of 25 different bird calls, hoots, and hollers. From blackbirds and woodpeckers to warblers and robins, all of the birds featured on the track are endangered in the UK. If you want to help “Let Nature Sing” reach #10 on the UK charts before the month is over, you can buy or stream the song from the society’s website. Full Story & Video

    Because of the upbeat nature of this forum and the absence of the usually controversial type topics, I would like to think that a long list of 'Do Not Rules' are not needed - so the few below should cover everything :) Please treat others with the same respect and courtesy that you would expect to receive yourself. No foul language / racism / hate speech or other offensive comments. No spamming, trolling or other disruptive behavior. Please ensure that articles/images you post are within copyright laws.
