Morning Glory, Donnington (2)

Recent Photograph of Morning Glory (2) (Donnington)

This spectacular view of a wisteria also captures the redness of Herefordshire stone!

The bank above, of which a fraction of green can be seen above the wall on the right, used to be a Vineyard. In the 18th Century it was owned by London bookseller, Jacob TONSON, who retired to Donnington, and in 1728 built a house here. His house was, by all accounts rather grand, and no longer survives, but it seems possible to me that this old wall, and the garden behind it may date back to the time of his house.
