Making history:

homes for sale at historic Headley Court

Homebuyers in Epsom will have a rare opportunity to secure

a property in a historic and stately setting when seven

houses, previously used to accommodate military officers

at Headley Court, are to be sold on the open market.

The sale of the large, detached, three and four-bedroom homes

at Cunliffe Close marks a new chapter in the history of Headley

Court, Epsom. For over 70 years, the estate has been the Ministry

of Defence’s Medical Rehabilitation Centre, helping to rebuild the

shattered bodies – and lives – of those injured whilst serving in the

armed forces. The growing need for a new, larger, state-of-the-art

facility has prompted a move to Stanford Hall, Loughborough.

The Grade II listed mansion at Headley Court was built in 1899

for Walter Cunliffe, Governor of the Bank of England during the

First World War. Set in an elevated position, it affords stunning

views over landscaped parkland and beyond. During World War

II, it became the headquarters of the VII Corps and, later, of the

Canadian Corps. Bought by the Institute of Chartered Auctioneers

and Estate Agents, it was presented to the RAF through the Air

Ministry in 1946. Initially treating aircrew injured in the war, it

became a facility for personnel serving in all three services.

“Headley Court has been a part of the local community for so many

years and there’s been a great deal of interest in what the future

holds for the site,” comments Vari Bowling of selling agent, Patrick

Gardner. We will be holding an Open Day on Saturday 15th June so

that prospective purchasers can view, and submit offers, for the seven

houses in Cunliffe Close. It may be the end of an era for Headley

Court, but it’s also the start of a new chapter in the estate’s history.”

Anyone interested in attending the Open Day or, for

further information on the properties at Cunliffe Close,

please contact Patrick Gardner on 01372 360832.

face painting, bouncy fun, toddler funfair and puppet shows and Huxley birds of prey will fly to the skies ….a great day out

for the whole family.

included in the Garden Show ticket. There will be a free guided walk on Friday with Loseley’s head gardener explaining the

high street. Come to the garden party and revitalise your garden and home whilst treating yourself. Life continues to be very

good at The Garden Show so take some time out to enjoy!

Midsummer dream

We are thoroughly excited for our

eleventh annual Wealden Times

to be the biggest and best yet. Our

talented team of fairies has handpicked

over 250 exhibitors which you will find

magnificent venue, Hole Park Estate.

Visit us there from Thursday 6 to Saturday

8 June to spend a glorious midsummer

day exploring stalls full of fabulous

fashion and jewellery, home wares both

contemporary and vintage, and gorgeous

garden accessories (if you end up with too

many bags to carry, our Shop and Drop

tent will store them and help you carry

them to your car in return for a donation

to our nominated charity Crash).

Even if you don’t have spending in mind,

there will be delicious food and drinks to

sample along The Avenue, the chance

to win a pair of diamond earrings

worth £795, the magnificent Hole

Park to explore, and plenty of

live music and free talks on

creating beautiful homes and

gardens. You can learn about

everything from painting

It’s finally arrived! After months of preparation, Surrey

Homes’ sister magazine Wealden Times will open the

gates of glorious Hole Park in Kent to visitors to its annual

Midsummer Fair on 6th June. Enjoy three days of summer

shopping in stunning surroundings. Interiors, fashion, food

and drink, the Fair has it all, alongside inspiring talks on

creating beautiful homes and gardens in the Home & Garden

Hub. Plus, you can still get hold of discounted tickets until

5th June if you book online at wealdentimes.co.uk/events.

This issue we’ve shot two elegant house renovations

with wonderfully contrasting interiors – a barn conversion

and a Georgian townhouse – both of which show

off their owners’ flair for design to full effect.

Getting into the swing of summer in the garden, Anna

Stanford preps a full-flavoured barbecue and Sue Whigham takes

a wander around her own garden to share her favourite plants.

Our Kitchen & Bathroom Supplement showcases

the latest styles, gadgets, accessories and real-life rooms

to help you get your own project underway.

Enjoy your Surrey Homes!

This page: Glass double doors lead into the kitchen

fter many happy years in a barn they had

converted into a family home, interior

architect Susie Pfeiffer has moved it

on to the next stage for her business and

family, with a fabulous modern extension.

The best houses are not just inert stacks of

bricks and mortar, but more like living things

which constantly change over time. This is

just one of these houses which has grown

– literally, it has more than doubled in size –

with Susie, her family and their businesses.

The journey started when Susie and her husband

Stephen bought the original old barn in 1992,

seeing the great potential in it to create a unique

family home, in the most beautiful South Downs

landscape, convenient for Brighton, Lewes and

Eastbourne and just three miles away from

the coast.

“It had been an old barn with horses

in it,” says Susie. “It had no floors or

dividing walls when we took it over.”


surrey-homes.co.uk


The dining room still retains

some classic features of the original

barn. With limestone flagstones

on the floor and a splendid carved

stone mantelpiece, this space has

an almost medieval grandeur

This meant they had total carte blanche

to arrange the space within the old walls.

An exciting prospect, but one which

might have been a tad overwhelming for

someone without their joint expertise.

Susie is a very successful interior architect

and Stephen is a property developer, so for

them it was a case of doing what they do,

but with only themselves as the clients.

Susie explains this to me as we sit in

the wonderful double-height dining

room, which still has all the atmosphere

This page: The dining room’s candle chandelier

is operated with a rope pulley, that you let down

to light the candles, then hoist up again adding

Above: Keeping the central dining space open, the

first floor gallery landing wraps around the L-shape

of the building. Left: A magnificent French door

leads to the new master bedroom

of the original building, with a candle

chandelier over the huge old table, operated

with a rope pulley that you let down to

light the candles, then hoist up again.

With limestone flagstones on the floor

and a splendid carved stone mantelpiece (an

architectural salvage find, like many pieces in

the house), this space has an almost medieval

grandeur – all the better to set off the clean

lines and glass walls of the new extension,

which you can see across the garden, forming

an L-shape to the original building.

The dining room still retains some classic

features of the original barn – as does the kitchen

it opens in to, still the original one they put in.

“A few years ago I painted it Farrow & Ball

Downpipe and changed the handles for an

instant update,” says Susie. “Now I’m thinking

to paint it dark green and change the work

surfaces to a mad marble – not grey and white, I

like the mad ones. There are always things in the

house I want to change, but I’m not wasteful.”

Walking out of the dining room the opposite

way you come into the other room, which

rear of the wardrobes – in padded velvet – act as a glamorous

contemporary backing to the velvet-upholstered bed, whilst

the original old bricks and wooden beams add antique drama

has stayed the same – the original master bedroom, with

a gobsmackingly fab antique French marble bath in it.

The bath is so deep, they put it in at floor level

and then built a platform around it – otherwise

you would need a step ladder to get into it. Susie

sourced the antique taps separately and had the

brass drain and stopper specially made.

Also found in salvage for this room is the wooden

parquet floor. “It’s from a school gym and when it

arrived, it still had the tape court markings on it.”

Head back into the dining room and there is an

elegant staircase up to the gallery landing and from

the bottom of it you can see a magnificent French

door that leads to the new master bedroom.

“Originally we had the master bedroom

downstairs and the living room up here, to

take advantage of the wonderful view.”

With two fabulous new sitting rooms in the extension (more

to come about that…) this view could now be appropriated

for enjoyment from bed – and that splendid double-height

door is a hint of the glamour that lies within. Absolutely

brilliantly, it has been hung to slide rather than swing open

and the first thing you see as you walk through it is another

door the same to the left, which leads to the en suite loo.

The very swish black marble shower room is visible straight

ahead, with a bank of wardrobes to the right, the doors finished

with antiqued gold leaf. Walk round the end of them and

the other side of the wardrobes turns out to be a dividing

wall of padded velvet headboard with a huge bed in front of

it, looking out over the garden to the large pond adjacent

to the house and on to the green slopes rising behind it.

This clever set up, making the absolute best of the space,

was all designed by Susie, who has her Pfeiffer Design Studio

in the house – more of a complex now, really – where her

Left: The holiday let Below: The original master

bedroom’s en suite features

a deep antique French marble bath

team source materials, design soft furnishings and do

technical drawings for the many projects, both residential

and commercial, they have on the go at any one time.

“This room was much more complicated to do,” explains

Susie, “with the slopes in the walls, and it was clear that

it just made more sense to put the bed in the middle.”

The result is the kind of professional polish you see

throughout the house, with the glamour of the headboard

and bedside lamps in the form of dramatic white pendant

lights by Flos, set off by the original old bricks and wooden

beams – with another old large scale stone fireplace

and a carved stone corbel adding antique drama.

With the old part of the house – and the earlier part of

the Pfeiffer family history – fully explored, it was time to

head through glass double doors in the kitchen to the new

extension, designed by MHD Architects, based in Ringmer.

The first space you hit is the funky luxe sitting room

which forms a link between the two parts of the house. A

minimalist modern staircase sweeps up to the right and there

are glass walls on both sides, looking out to the elegantly

planted garden at the front, with an outdoor dining area and

a carp pond, and to the back onto a dramatic gabion wall.

Gabions are those wire cages filled with rocks that are used

to shore up the bare earth when they build motorways. Here

they are filled with limestone from Rye Harbour, holding up

the hill they dug into behind the house – which they had to

do to get light pouring into the extension from both sides.

This has created a very cool feature that provides a pleasing

contemporary counterpoint to the original flint garden wall,

which you can see through the glass wall on the other side.

The ground-level paved walkway between the gabions and

the back glass wall has logs stored in bays, a tree in a pot and

a Georgia O’Keeffe-style animal skull (from Martin

Johnson in nearby Seaford) on the wall. At first-floor

level, there are two wooden bridges leading from

the upstairs landing, across the void to a decking

area with outdoor seating and dining areas.

It’s very cool and industrial looking, fitting perfectly

with the practical agricultural use of the original

building, and the rough natural textures set off the

Above left & bottom right: The holiday let’s sitting room, in the third wing of the house, features panelling designed by Susie

Top right: The eat-in kitchen

luxurious Pfeiffer Design soft furnishings inside here,

just as the old bricks do in the master bedroom.

The formal sitting room – although that doesn’t

seem a groovy enough word for it – has a very LA feel,

with a pair of 1960s Cappellini swivel chairs covered

in original Pucci fabric the colours of Neapolitan ice

cream, oversized 1950s brass pineapple lamps and

velvet sofas from the Pfeiffer Design range, which they

have made in their own workshop in Eastbourne.

“This space has evolved,” says Susie. “It wasn’t all

bought together to be matchy matchy. I found pieces

from here and there and it all came together.”

It’s practically impossible to sit on one of those sofas,

next to the mid-century style wood burner, worthy of Dr

No, leaning against the velvet cushions in on-trend Art

Deco-style prints by Kirkby Designs – “recently changed

from a flowery print” – without feeling you really should

have a glass in your hand. Ideally, of the martini shape.

Susie confirms that this area is great for entertaining – and

for client presentations and I really can’t see how you could

not engage Pfeiffer Design after experiencing that space.

Which is, in fact, another of the reasons they embarked

on the new extension, as Susie explains: “We wanted to

use the house as a kind of show home for the business.”

From the sitting room a corridor leads along to a cosy

TV room, with a black Pfeiffer Design sofa and elegant

Joinery for rooms like this and dressing rooms is a large part

of the business and gives a very sleek finish to a room.

Next to this are the design studio offices – and

on the same footprint on the floor above, two more

bedrooms and bathrooms. Then the house hinges

again, with a third wing around the walled garden.

This part of the new extension, which has its own entrance,

has been designed specifically to be a chic two-bedroom

holiday let. The scene is set perfectly as you enter the large

hallway, with a wall arrangement of straw hats, a boat race

oar and other jolly holiday items carefully arranged. The two

bedrooms – both stylishly kitted out by Pfeiffer Design – are

on this floor.

A

wonderful pair of his and hers chairs. In the 50 s

and 60 s it was common for armchairs to be built for

the man of the house slightly bigger than the lady’s

chair. This pair of Wesley Barrell up-cycled armchairs have

been re-upholstered in a lovely bold Voyage fabric with

large Daisy flowers. They have a contrasting Ashley Wilde

birch velvet fabric. Not only the height of comfort but also

with a bold pastel statement. They create the wow factor.

They are ideal for a special place in the lounge and will also

look great in your hotel.

This page: To shore up the hillside that the house is built into, gabion boxes have been filled with

limestone from Rye Harbour. At first floor level, two wooden bridges lead out from the upstairs

landing, across the void to a decking area with outdoor seating and dining areas

this room special is the panelling on the walls, designed

by Susie herself, who says: “Without it, it could be just a

modern box. I wanted to add some real character to it”.

Across the upper landing is the sleek white eat-in

kitchen, with sliding glass doors out onto the bleached

hardwood decking, with a barbecue and outside

seating, with views to the fields and hills beyond.

It’s unoccupied when I visit and I can’t help

wondering how it is having holidaymakers so close to

the family space, when renters are in residence.

“Everyone that has come to stay have been really

nice people,” says Susie. “We don’t notice they are

here. It’s more that we have to be quiet for them!”

And really, having the chance to stay in such

a special place, all designed and curated by

expert hands, who wouldn’t be nice?

This elegant Georgian townhouse has to be

approached on foot, because it is tucked down

a narrow leafy lane away from the sight and

sound of any cars. The oasis of calm in the middle

of busy Tunbridge Wells is made more leafy by the

fact that the garden is in the front of the house and,

delightfully, you have to wind your way through the

garden to get to the front door. The garden itself has a

timeless quality; it could have been just as it is for many

years, but the fact that it was only made a few years

ago gives a clue to the artful capabilities of its owners.

The house is Grade II listed, but the owners were

pleasantly surprised to find that the two reception

rooms on the ground floor had been knocked

into one spacious, light-filled room. When the

terrace was first built, the sitting room would have

been located on the first floor, with the ground

floor divided into a kitchen and small parlour.

A happy set of circumstances – unintended, as is so

often the case – meant that they bought the house

Above: In the sitting room, the grand,

imposing pelmet was installed originally to

hide a missing piece of cornice work

Left: A combined radiator cover and

bookshelf is a clever use of storage space

and then put their existing one on the market. It

took them a while to sell their own property, so their

daughter moved in for a few months, which meant

that they were able to spend time thinking about how

they would renovate. The time lag proved invaluable,

allowing them to plan out the changes carefully before

jumping in. Luckily the weather was very good, so

the experience of ‘camping’ in a couple of rooms and

living in the garden was an enjoyable one. It also

made the tricky process of downsizing and slimming

down furniture and possessions a little easier and

meant that they were able to start work on the garden.

Their builders converted the basement into

a makeshift kitchen and bathroom while the

major work was completed. Painted a glossy

white throughout it is now a very useful extra

space, used as an art studio and workroom.

The house had not been touched for over 25

years and so was in need of a thorough overhaul.

They could also see an opportunity for extending

the kitchen out into what had been a small half-covered

courtyard. This has made the ground floor area much

bigger and more usable and even enabled them to create

a light-filled vestibule, or tiny orangery (or rather a

‘satsumery’) that leads out to the back door. The glass

panel is an elegant addition and separates the kitchen from

the entrance at the back of the house. It is double glazed

and so creates a thermal barrier between the kitchen and

the outside wall at the back of the house. This, together

with under floor heating, makes the kitchen a very warm

room during the winter, which is handy because the rest

of the windows, an intrinsic part of Georgian architecture,

remain single glazed. The original window at the back of

the house now provides a view from the sitting room to

the kitchen, and so light floods through from one end of

the building to the other. The kitchen feels especially airy

and bright thanks to the lantern light that they installed

in order to bring in as much natural light as possible.

The builders initially renovated and decorated the

basement, which was used as a makeshift kitchen and

bathroom. During the renovations they discovered a

kept the unnervingly thin support, which resembles an

ornate Victorian pole dancer’s pole, and is used more

as a decorative feature now. Thankfully, there are now

proper steels in place to support the upstairs bathroom.

The kitchen has been cleverly designed and is almost

unfitted; a combination of cupboards and a dresser unit have

been used for storage instead. A large cupboard houses,

and hides, the washing machine and dishwasher.

It is tricky to get a successful unfinished look

in a kitchen, so the unit housing the sink and

cooker is fitted, but stylishly so – one of the units

curves gracefully across a corner. The paint has

been stripped off the opposite wall to reveal the

remnants of the original blue colour and the bricks

have been left exposed, preserving the patina as

both a mark of history and a wonderful textural

surface. The rest of the walls, in fact all the other

walls in the house, are painted white, but the

effect is not at all stark. The colour appears to

alter as the light changes in the different rooms,

picking up hints of colour and reflecting them

back. The impression given is that the walls have

been painted in slightly different shades.

up’ blinds, together with stunning curtains in a wonderful

blue-grey fabric, redolent of the sea or sky in stormy

weather. A prominent and original feature is the witty

and creative use of a famous Gainsborough painting as a

bedhead. This clever idea has set a trend and they can now

be made to order directly from the makers of the fabric.

The only piece of original plasterwork is in this bedroom,

as the whole house had to be re-plastered throughout.

Another large bedroom can be found on the top floor,

with stunning views across the garden to rooftops beyond –

the only reminder of town life. This room has a serene and

understated elegance, enhanced by the verdigris-coloured

bed, which is almost an artwork in itself. It was bought in

France for around £20 many years ago at a brocante and,

despite its romantic, delicate looks, has a strong framework

underneath. This main guest room is simply furnished

with a large wardrobe from ’Tasha Interiors, painted a

“smudgy green” by the owners, and a Mark Maynard desk.

The small guest bedroom is charming and equally

restful, housing a single bed and a large built-in

cupboard, which allows for extra storage space.

Artwork features prominently on the walls of the

staircase. Along the top of the landing, as you descend the

stairs, there is a paper sculpture by Jack Milroy, featuring

alpine flowers cut out to stand up from the book they

were printed in. Further down the stairs larger artworks

shine out boldly and bring character to the space.

The only working fireplace is found in the living

room, where a collection of tiny birds march along

the mantelpiece towards a wave of hands. This end of

the room has a touch of grandeur,

created by the imposing pelmet that

was installed originally to hide a

missing piece of cornice work – a

deliberate obfuscation to hide the fact

that they couldn’t get the cornice to

match across the gap. A large ornate

mirror completes the look and artfully

manages to juxtapose with more

modern features. A clever use of space

has been the installation of combined

radiator cover and bookshelves, that

apparently came in flat pack form.

Country

meets Contemporary

in this real Neptune kitchen

Step in to the beam-laden kitchen of a rather well-known

musician and his family, not far from Tunbridge Wells…


Every kitchen created by British

interiors brand Neptune is an

individual. There’s nothing offthe-shelf

about their approach to

kitchen design. They have four,

traditionally-made, timeless timber kitchen

collections, but how you choose to put your

own stamp on them is entirely up to you.

To help you picture how a Neptune kitchen

might fit into your home, each month on

their online journal, they feature the real

homes that have welcomed one in. It’s a

way to see how other people have designed,

styled and made a Neptune kitchen their

own. Including this one, that proves the

Chichester collection can carry off polished,

contemporary style as much as classic country…

Home profile

This Chichester kitchen is living amongst a

very famous face in the world of house music.

Nathan Duvall is one of the three members

of the band Disciples (he had just returned

home from a world tour when Neptune arrived

for their photoshoot). While Nathan is busy

making music, his wife, Leoni runs her own

hamper business called Lou’s of London where

she brings together personal shopping and

hamper gifting. And then there’s their 12-

year old, football-obsessed son, Casey. This

creative household moved from Surrey to

their 17th Century listed barn in Kent, which

was a working farm until only four years ago.

It had already been converted into a home

when they bought the property, but they’ve

since completely reconfigured the layout and

redesigned the interior. And it all started with

their Neptune kitchen.

The project

Leoni knew all about Neptune well before she

started designing her dream kitchen; she would

often pop into Neptune on trips to London.

When it came to deciding on her own kitchen,

they pinged to mind and into Neptune she

went. “Before we’d even moved in, I knew I’d

want to start by sorting out the kitchen. Nathan

took some persuading, surprise surprise, but I

dragged him along and took him to Neptune so

he could see why I was obsessed!” Leoni told us.

They started by buying Neptune’s Seaton

flagstone flooring. “That’s where it all began,”

she laughed. “Then we nipped back a few more

times. I thought I’d wear him down gradually.

We had our complimentary design consultation

and quote with the designers. We were wowed

with it when we went. It’s huge!” By this point,

Leoni and Nathan had almost settled on the

Chichester kitchen and they decided to stick

with the collection they had loved from the

start. “Chichester definitely stood out to me

the most. I loved the light and bright colour.

It made the space seem bigger but wasn’t

too clinical and I liked that it had a bit of a

traditional character to it.”

With the Chichester collection decided, the

design of their new kitchen really got underway.

Like most people, Leoni had more than one

or two things on her wishlist. “I wanted an

island with a big Belfast sink in the middle

and I loved the Everhot cookers I’d seen in the

Neptune stores. Nathan wanted an American

fridge with one of those water dispensers and

we both wanted a wine fridge and lots and lots

of storage. We have all of that – it’s hard to say

it without smiling – and more storage than I

could’ve ever imagined. We’ve got a larder, huge

drawers, little drawers, corner carousel cabinets.

I know where everything is and I can get to it all

so easily,” Leoni continued.

Leoni found the design process smooth and

bump-free and gave high praise to the kitchen

designer, especially for how they were able to

develop their ideas further and add things to the

design that they might not have otherwise done.

“The designer suggested a breakfast pantry area

a bit like what Neptune’s Suffolk and Henley

kitchen collections can have with their bi-fold

doors. This was made in Chichester for us.

Nathan wanted to add a cooker hood too but

it wasn’t easy to do. I honestly couldn’t fault

Neptune in any way. The communication was

excellent and the whole process was incredibly

smooth. Even down to the tiniest detail, like

how they gave us extra touch-up pots of paint

because they knew how, with Casey around,

there would always be a ball in sight threatening

my lovely Shell-coloured cabinets! I thought that

was a really considerate touch that just summed

up the whole experience for us.”

Life in their new kitchen

What’s your favourite thing to do in your new

kitchen?

“Nathan says my favourite thing to do is clean.

That’s partly true, but only because I love it so

much! In all seriousness, I love Nathan making

breakfast in it. He’s the breakfast king. It’s all he

can do though if I’m honest. We also just love

standing together and looking at our kitchen too

– I’m not even joking!”

What’s your favourite part?

“The hot Quooker tap. It’s seriously a wow

factor for our guests – it’s become part of our

act. Everyone finds it amazing.”

What could you now not live without?

“The wine fridge. Let’s just say it gets very good

use. That, and everything really. It’s all used and

appreciated. Having the double sink is a huge

help too. I literally can’t pick one thing, it’s too

hard.”

In each one of Neptune’s stores – including

their Tonbridge and Weybridge home – are

their expert kitchen designers, there to listen

to all your wants and wishes, and help you

create a kitchen that feels most like you. To find

The brief:

As the director of an electrical company, the owner of

this roomy, detached split-level home was seeking to

create a kitchen with a spark! The vision was to blend

modern, angular design with clever functionality, with

a specific request for the incorporation of a large

island to serve as the focal point for entertainment.

The soluTion:

Surrey-based kitchen retailer and Stoneham Kitchens

dealer, RDO Kitchen Studio, made this dream

kitchen into a reality. The setting was a large and

open-plan space, complete with a sprawling skylight

which allows through plenty of natural light.

Two Stoneham ranges were chosen to

create a complementary contrast; Mode in

Anthracite Oak and Infinity Cashmere.

With a textured oak grain in the on-trend shade

of dark grey, Mode adds warmth to the highgloss,

sleek silhouette of Infinity, and creates a

beautifully balanced and modern kitchen. A large

expanse of floor-to-ceiling cabinets in Anthracite

Oak are skilfully divided up with a single strip of

Cashmere, gloss-finish cupboards, enhancing the

overall linear aesthetic. Directly underneath, a silver

metallic glass splashback provides a sophisticated

backdrop for food prep and kitchen clean-up.

Mirroring the straight lines and right angles of the

rectangular island, the installation of a Miele state-ofthe-art

ceiling extractor fan directly above the island

efficiently removes cooking odours – an essential

feature for the open plan layout. Other technological

touches include the latest combination microwave

and steam Siemens ovens, integrated cool white LED

worktop lighting and SLS cool white LED downlights.

With clever finishing touches such as black mirror

panelling on the fridge and freezer doors, and a 3-layer

cabinet cornice in Zebrano, the result is a strikingly

simple and modern kitchen, with a subtle design twist.

Case Study:

Kitchen

What goes into producing a dream kitchen like this

one? James Buck of Neptune Tonbridge explains...

What was the project brief?

A contemporary style kitchen

required to suit a modern new

build property, with a sociable

open plan living arrangement,

decorated in light/neutral colours/

tones and tactile finishes. The design

included a large island with seating

arrangement, along with a bank

of full height cabinets to house

the majority of the appliances and

the statement Limehouse larder.

How was the kitchen made? The

cabinets are made from tulipwood,

plywood and oak, with a handpainted

finish in Neptune ‘Lily’

externally and Neptune ‘Fog’

internally. The quartz work surface

is manufactured by Silestone.

How long did it take to

complete? Approximately three

weeks from start to finish.

Initially five working days to fit

the majority of the cabinetry to

be ready for the work surface

template. The work surface was

fitted seven working days later,

with two further days to complete

the kitchen cabinet installation.

Were any special features

included? A dropped ceiling was

created to house a large flush ceiling

mounted extractor. This was not

only functional, but formed an

interesting feature – the horizontal

LED strip lighting incorporated

reflects the LED lighting installed to

the underside of the worktop above

the cabinet doors. A cabinet was

also adapted to conceal the main

manifold for the underfloor heating

system, with storage space above.

We worked with the architect

to ensure that the worktop ran in

line with the top of the window

frame, to conceal it, as one of

the main features of the dwelling

are the ‘frameless’ windows.

A Welcoming Retreat

re you desperate to let a little more light into your

bathroom, but concerned that your privacy may be

compromised? Surrey Homes chats to Plantation

Shutters about how their hard-wearing window coverings

provide a durable and stylish alternative to traditional blinds

How can Plantation Shutters improve

the privacy in a bathroom?

Plantation Shutters allow you to control light coming into the

room, as well as providing the privacy required. There is no need

to totally close off the window and have a dark bathroom when

you have shutters, whereas with heavy curtains or blinds you do.

Are bathroom Plantation Shutters made from

a different material to Plantation Shutters

that are fitted to the rest of the house?

All of our materials can be installed by customers in bathrooms,

provided the room is well-ventilated and the shutter is

not directly exposed to water. If your window is in direct

contact with water or if your bathroom is unventilated, we

advise customers to order the Permawood range for their

bathroom, wet room or kitchen. These waterproof shutters

have the same appearance of wooden shutters but are made

from ABS (better quality and more elegant than vinyl)

which won’t warp or split when in contact with water.

Are there choices of styles and colours?

There are no limitations to how you can design your

bathroom window shutters, as they come in many styles

and colours. We often recommend tier on tier, which can

potentially provide full privacy for the lower section while

having the top section open for more natural light and

ventilation. We have a wide range of colours and stains.

Our most popular is white, which allows maximum light

reflection and blends in with enamel sinks and baths.

How long do they take to fit? Is it a messy process?

Shutters will arrive as a finished man-made product. Some

fittings can be slightly more complicated, such as in bathrooms,

but as experts, we are more than familiar with fitting to tiles/

glass, for example. We always protect the windows and surrounds

when working on any room and never leave a mess. We would

hope to be able to fit shutters on a single window in about

two hours, but naturally it depends on how complicated the fit

can turn out to be.

Can shutters be fitted into all types of windows?

There is no other window treatment that can complement

feature-shaped windows better than shutters. They are custom

made to fit triangular and curved windows of any shape or

size, as well as your standard rectangular windows. If you’re

worried about being unable to open your shutters because of

taps, or tiles obstructing the panels, there is usually a way to

work around it. We advise customers to really think about

how they envisage using their bathroom shutters, as this is

important when designing your panel and slat configuration.

Can you give us a rough idea of cost?

Our product costs vary based on specification and quality.

We stay away from products that seem tempting due to

price – as the leading specialist and longest established

company within the UK, we know this is a false economy.

That said, for a great product our range starts from £150

per m2 and goes up to about £390 per m2. Our best value

and most popular product are about £250 per m2.

Case Study:

Bathroom

We take a look at a collaboration

between Catchpole & Rye and

Studio Milne to create a stunning

pink marble guest bathroom

What was the project brief? The bathroom

is within a five-bed freehold Georgian

terraced house in East London, and is the

guest bathroom. The Original space was three

rooms, small blue suite bathroom, cloakroom

and kitchenette. We knocked all rooms

together into one grand and well-proportioned

space. The client wanted to create a calm

and timeless space for their guest bathroom.

In conversation with them it soon became

apparent that they loved the glamorous luxury

of old school ‘powder rooms’, but wanted

to avoid it being too overly feminine.

How was the bathroom made? The room was

designed to be soft and warm, with the delicate

pink tones to the walls and marble and warm

metallics in the bath. This was balanced with

monochrome mosaic floor tiles which helps

to ground the peachy, pink tones, without

looking too heavy. Another layer of interest

is added as the floor is reflected in the bath.

We thought it was really important to

not overdo the metal finishes. We love the

nickel finish to the inside of the bath, and

so chose nickel brassware to tie in with

the bath’s interior. We went for a classic

design, to sit well with all the other items.

We wanted the walls and skirtings to

blend together, so that the skirting appears

to be a detail coming out of the wall, rather

than a completely different element running

around the room. Again it all comes back

to simplifying as much as possible, so that

the bath and shower wall can sing.

How long did it take to complete?

The project build had a few complications

along the way and this bathroom was one of

many rooms in the refurb. The whole house

took about a year to complete on site.

Were any special features included?

We didn’t want the room to look too fussy.

As the chimney breast wall is so wide, we

were able to have just one central shower

screen. The ‘splash’ distance was calculated

and didn’t impact the floor. The shower tray is

also in the pink marble, to keep continuity.

The Project was designed by

Beauty

Beauty without

the Burn

Josephine Fairley looks into the popularity

of charcoal-based skincare

I

have a love-hate relationship with

charcoal. You might, too, if you had

a husband in the ‘biochar’ business,

who makes a clever charcoal product

that does double-duty as a soil improver

and locks up carbon in the soil for

thousands of years. (For the nitty-gritty,

head over to carbongold.com. It is quite

wondrous stuff, even if I wouldn’t put it

on my face.)

Now, many of my husband Craig’s

initial experiments with charcoal were

carried out in our house. In some cases,

in my Magimix. Which meant that

for quite some time, almost everything

on the ground floor of our house was

covered in a light film of fine black

powder. When a journalist once asked

me if I was involved in this particular

venture of my husband’s, I smiled wryly

and replied: ‘The only thing I can

bring to this business is a damp cloth.’

Going beyond the fact it’s a boon

for gardeners, however, the therapeutic

benefits of charcoal are rooted in

tradition. For centuries it’s been used

for medicinal purposes (mostly for gut

problems) and for water treatment, as

well as for detoxing. In the last couple

of years, though, activated charcoal

has become a real buzz in the beauty

world. And small wonder. It’s pretty

miraculous, absorbing water and

drawing impurities out of the skin,

gently buffing the surface to reveal

fresh cells. And, counterintuitively, it’s

also completely brilliant for cleaning

teeth (those tiny particles, again).

Bamboo charcoal, in particular,

has become increasingly

popular; it can be ground

into super-fine particles

and is a sustainable plant

source, sprouting quickly from the

same roots when it’s harvested. So

for this edition, I thought I’d focus

on some of the charcoal-based

products that have most impressed

me, since it came onto my radar.

Try cleansing with charcoal... The

Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Cleansing

Ritual, £32.50, is a two-step treatment

which begins by dissolving makeup

and grime with a Citrus Oil

Radiance Cleanse, then ‘doublecleanses’

with the Purifying

Charcoal Cleanse. I was

worried this might be a bit

gritty and grainy, but in fact,

it’s wonderfully slippy and

soft, perfect for massaging the

mixture of bamboo charcoal

and Nordic beauty peat (which

can help balance skin’s pH) into

the complexion. You remove

it with the muslin cloth and

swoosh away the last traces.

The result is skin that’s really

and truly clean, yet comfy with

it. For a completely different

style of cleansing, meanwhile,

check out The Konjac Sponge

Company Pure Konjac Puff

Sponge with Bamboo Charcoal,

£8.99, which, when dampened,

lifts off make-up and grime quite

astonishingly effectively without

the use of a separate cleanser. The

bamboo charcoal infused into the

sponge – from an Asian plant that’s

been used for over 1,500 years – makes

this good not only for occasional spotsufferers,

but (so I’m told) for helping

to guard against in-grown beard hairs.

Try charcoal as a face mask... Because

of its unique ability to draw out


97 wealdentimes.co.uk


Beauty

impurities, charcoal is particularly

good for oily- and spot-prone skins, or

for combination complexions. (If you

fall into this later, very common skin

category, you might want to multi-mask

with something super-moisturising on

the drier areas.) Brilliant for blitzing

blackheads, too. So, to try: The Body

Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying

Glow Mask, £17 for 75ml, which has

become one of their bestsellers (smooth

it on with The Body Shop Facial

Mask Brush, £8, for the most even

application). Origins Clear Improvement,

£22 for 75ml, is one of the gentler

takes on a charcoal mask, great for

clogged skins, and for oily skin that’s

on the touchy side, I’d also recommend

Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Charcoal

Mask, £25 for 100ml, a fragrance-fee

option that delivers a great deep cleanse,

leaving skin matte. A product that did

incredibly well in a special trial that we

carried out at Beauty Bible, meanwhile,

is Yes To Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal

Mud Mask, £11.99 for 93g, a creamytextured

mask which deeply impressed

the testers for its power to blitz spots

and breakouts. (NB: Always avoid the

eye zone with charcoal masks, as they

can dry this tender area of skin.)

Try charcoal as a body scrub... Again,

I’m a particular fan of Origins Clear

Improvement Detoxifying Charcoal Body

Scrub, £25 for 100ml, which is good

for any (body) skin type, blending

bamboo charcoal with sea salt and

brown sugar, with a head-rush scent

of wintergreen and clove that leaves

you feeling as clean as your skin looks.

The packaging for most charcoal

products appears pretty ‘unisex’, and the

products are eminently shareable – but

a great option that’s designed for men

is Man Cave Blackspice Body Scrub,

£5 for 200ml, which blends charcoal

with powdered pumice, black pepper,

juniper and cardamom oils, alongside

soothing aloe. Or for something a little

different, try the Zero Skin Charcoal

Body Sponge, £11.95, which looks

worryingly like a lump of lava when

dry, but softens to cleanse the body

gently, helping to balance pH levels.

Use on its own or with a favourite soap.

Try charcoal on your hair... Itchy,

irritated scalp? Maybe charcoal can help,

here. Briogeo Scalp Revival charcoal

products have become cult heroes, with

an innovative range that

includes Charcoal + Coconut

Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo, £36

for 236ml, Scalp Revival Charcoal &

Biotin Dry Shampoo, £21.50 for 50ml

(brilliant for refreshing hair between

washes), and the Charcoal + Tea Tree

Scalp Treatment, £27 for 30ml, which

cools the scalp with mint, features

biotin to strengthen hair, and generally

offers plenty of TLC for touchy scalps,

while removing product build-up.

Try it on your teeth... Though

your toothbrush may look black after

use, your pearlies will look pearlier

after three minutes’ scrubbing with a

bamboo tooth powder. (Follow with

your usual toothpaste.) I especially

like Georganics Tooth Powder, £6.90

for 60ml, from an all-natural tooth

brand, which works to polish away

plaque and stains very effectively.

(Great for coffee- and wine-drinkers.)

Last but not least, try a charcoal

foundation brush. This is probably my

favourite charcoal-based product of all.

I hesitate to use the word ‘lifechanging’,

but I am unbelievably

impressed by the Guerlain L’Essentiel

Foundation Brush, £38, which is

treated with bamboo charcoal. In a

perfect world you’d also use it with

Guerlain L’Essentiel Foundation – my

favourite new base for 2019 (and

it’s going to be hard to beat, let me

tell you). But I’ve tried it with other

foundations, too and this brush

delivers an amazingly streak-free,

bare-skin finish that I’m hooked on.

All without leaving a speck of

charcoal on my countertops. Praise be...

Luscious Lips (Lip FiLLer)

With age, the lips naturally become thinner

and lose their definition, and the v-shaped

area of the upper lip, known as Cupid’s

bow, is where you’re most likely to see this

happen.

Many people try to disguise the effects

of ageing in this area with make-up, but

it can bleed down the vertical wrinkles

and highlight the problem. If you’ve been

wondering how to look younger, lip fillers

are an easy answer because they’re quick,

affordable and non-invasive.

They can be the centrepiece of a makeover

that gives you youthful looking, plump lips

and a more defined smile. Because the lips

are sensitive, we apply local anaesthetic

cream about an hour before the procedure

to numb them. Dermal filler is injected,

usually into the upper rim of the lip to

define the Cupid’s bow, and immediately

afterwards you may experience small

pinpricks for a few hours.

There is often some mild redness of the

skin, but this settles by the next day and

Fitting in Fitness

In the first of a new series of columns for Surrey Homes,

personal trainer Sarah Maxwell breaks down the sometimes

daunting prospect of exercise into easily manageable

activities that can be slotted into a busy lifestyle

Spring is turning into summer.

As the days become longer and

warmer, it’s time to enjoy the

great outdoors, peel off the layers

and slip into that little summer dress.

Whilst we are slowly learning that

the images of models and celebrities

we’re fed by the media are unrealistic

(and airbrushed!) some of us might be

wanting to look a little more svelte.

If that sounds like you, then here are

my tips on getting the best results.

Exercise outdoors

The summer months are a great time

to start exercising, taking advantage

of the good weather and moving your

workouts outside. Nature and regular

exercise have a hugely beneficial

impact on our mental health. Many

people are deficient in vitamin D,

especially in our climate, and working

out in the sun helps with this and

has great therapeutic benefits.

Bring the kids

If you have children, encourage them

to join in with you. It’s also great for

them to see that exercise is an essential

part of a well-rounded lifestyle. If

Mummy is doing it and enjoying

it, then it will stick with them.

Best summer activities

Walking, hiking, cycling, swimming,

outdoor exercise classes. Working

out with friends in your garden.

Many people take on a personal

trainer and split the cost as it’s

also a lot of fun and motivating

to be with like-minded people.

Already exercising?

If you already exercise regularly,

now is a great time to shake up your

workout and try some new things.

When your workout becomes routine

and you’re no longer challenging your

muscles, you will stop making gains

and improvements. Variety is key.

Help in changing

your mindset

If you’re not a fan of exercise, then do

something you enjoy; life is too short

to dread a workout and then feel even

worse by not doing it. By thinking of

exercise as ‘me time’ and not something

that you need to do to punish yourself,

you will actually enjoy it. Take each

day at a time and use exercise as a

reward, not a punishment. Remind

yourself that every time you exercise

you are giving yourself a gift of physical

and mental health and moving one

step closer to where you want to be.

Measure your results

Put the scales away! If you’re determined

to lose a few pounds before the holidays,

change the way you measure your

results. I call weighing scales ‘the step

of shame’ as they can make or break

your day just by stepping on them.

Instead, use a measuring tape and

regularly measure your waist, your hips,

your thighs, or – even better – find a

pair of too tight trousers (or dress) and

try them on weekly to measure your

progress. It’s a much more positive way

of getting into shape, particularly as

muscle weighs more than fat, so you can

lose inches without losing pounds.

Sarah’s

safety tips:

Outdoor exercise

Try to exercise in the cooler

part of the day (morning or

early evening). If this isn’t

possible, find some shade.


Drink sips of water every few

minutes to keep hydrated.


Wear breathable clothing.


Be visible to drivers if

out on the road.

Turn down your headphones

so you can hear what’s

going on around you.


If you’re going out on

your own, let someone

know where you are.


Vary your route and schedule.

Horses for Healing

Emma Rourke explains how she has harnessed the

therapeutic power of horses to provide equine assisted

personal development through her company, Hephzibah

What is Hephzibah? Hephzibah, in short, means new name, new

identity. It is a Hebrew word that comes from the Old Testament

Book of Isaiah, who was a prophet. The significance for me is very

personal as it is talking about overcoming life’s heartbreaks and

has been my story of overcoming personal challenges, particularly

growing up with alcoholism and the devastating effects it can

have within families. Horses are amazing animals – offering me

comfort, emotional resilience and helping me to be brave. My

story, I hope, will inspire others to be able to overcome similar

challenges. I am very fortunate to have helped many people who

suffer addiction – your past does not have to define who you are.

What issues do you deal with? I work with people on many

levels, dealing with anxiety, depression, confidence, PTSD, and

leadership in business. It is not always necessary to have

a problem, it can be a great way to de-stress, and leave our fast

paced world behind for a little while, to connect with horses,

nature and yourself. The Hephzibah approach is a gentle,

non-judgemental way to become self-aware and learn the

tools of emotional regulation, as it is based in neuroscience

and psychology. I am not a counsellor, more of a facilitator to

empower people to find their own answers, and I also act as a

bit of a cheerleader, with the help of my partners, the horses.

How does it work? There is no short answer to how it works, but

to give you an idea, horses are flight animals, they sense things

emotionally and are very good at picking up where people may

be hiding something. They mirror people and sense what is really

going on for them, this makes them fantastic co-facilitators, as

they pick up on someone’s body language and energy and will

mirror back to them what they might not be saying. They are

extremely forgiving and are social animals who enjoy interacting

with humans. How you show up on the day is the bio feedback

you get back. They help people to be fully authentic, as you

can’t hide anything from a horse. Winston Churchill once

said, “There is something about the outside of a horse, that

is good for the inside of a man”. I believe this to be true.

What makes horse therapy better than conventional

therapy? For many people, talking about their problems can

be a problem in itself. Equine assisted learning can be a more

natural, experiential way to explore how a person is feeling

without the need to verbalise everything. It works very well

as a stand-alone therapeutic intervention and also alongside

more traditional therapies. It can open the door where maybe

people have found other approaches more difficult.

Can different horses produce a different therapeutic effect?

Do you pair clients with a specific horse? Different horses offer

different experiences. With equine assisted learning, the horses are

at liberty, free to make a choice on who they want to interact with

or not, unlike more traditional riding. It has been my experience

that the horse picks the person. I have had clients who have had

anxiety and one particular horse will come forward, and for others

suffering grief another will choose to come forward. It is an honour

to observe clients, who sometimes have very powerful interactions

with the horses that have helped them, become self-aware and

acknowledge the root of their pain, to allow the healing to take

place. The neuroscience behind becoming more aware of what

we are holding in our bodies helps people to re-frame negative

mindsets and re-set the brain with healthy new neural pathways.

Tandoori Spatchcock Chicken with Mango Salad

Serves 4 Prep time: 15 mins Cooking time: 40-50 mins

I’ve used a spatchcocked chicken here which, if our mini heatwave

hadn’t already left us, could have been thrown on the barbecue.

Instead, I cooked this curry alternative in my favourite casserole pan in

the oven. Spatchcocking reduces cooking time, but this recipe would

also work with a regular chicken, or two, or three if feeding a crowd.

• 1 large (1.7kg) chicken, spatchcocked

(you can ask your butcher to do it for you)

for 5 minutes on each side, then move the chicken to the side

of the grill and continue cooking on the gentler heat for 30-40

minutes turning every 10 minutes. Alternatively, roast the chicken

at 200°C for 50 minutes in an oven. Check that the chicken

is cooked by piercing a knife between the thighs and breasts.

The juices should run clear. Rest the chicken for 10 minutes.

3Mix together the mango salad ingredients and once the

chicken is ready, spoon over the top or serve as a side dish.

For the marinade:

• 4 tbsp Greek yogurt

• 1 tsp paprika

• 1 tsp turmeric

• 1 tsp chilli powder

• 1 tsp coriander

• 1 tsp cumin

• 2 tsp grated ginger

• 2 garlic cloves, crushed

• ½ tsp Maldon Salt

• juice ½ lemon

Sicilian Swordfish Skewers

Serves 4 Prep time: 1 hour Cooking time: 8 minutes

A meal on a stick! These are perfect for the barbecue as the

fish holds its form. They could also be grilled or cooked on

a griddle. Swordfish is meaty and lean and works brilliantly

with this Sicilian inspired marinade.

• 500g new potatoes,

large ones halved

• 600g swordfish – approx

2 steaks cut 1 inch

thick – I used Sankey’s

Fishmongers in Tonbridge

• 3 courgettes cut

into 1 inch slices

• zest of 1 orange

For the marinade:

• 1 large orange, juice & zest

• juice ½ lemon

• 4 tbsp olive oil

• 1 chilli, finely chopped

• 1 tbsp fresh chopped mint

• salt and pepper

1Boil the potatoes for 10

minutes until just soft.

Cool. Cut the swordfish

into 1 inch cubes.

2Combine the marinade

ingredients in a bowl

and add the courgettes,

potatoes and swordfish.

Leave to marinate in the

fridge if you have time.

3Skewer the potatoes,

courgettes and swordfish.

If using wooden skewers

soaking them for 30 mins in

water beforehand will stop

the fish sticking to them.

4Cook on a medium heat

of the grill or in a hot lightlyoiled

frying pan or griddle for

8 minutes, turning the skewers

every minute. Spoon over the

marinade whilst cooking.

Early

Harvests

Jo Arnell explains how you

can reap the rewards of

a little forward planning

when it comes to the

most productive crops

in the veg patch


Garden

The unstoppable rush of growth pushes on in the

garden, as the plants race towards the solstice – the

longest day, when there is maximum light. After

this heady moment, growth starts to slow and nature begins

to prepare for winter (I know, summer has only just got

here). It’s an exciting time to be outside, but it can be hard

to keep up with the tasks, too. Luckily, there are some

early crops to harvest as a reward for all our hard work.

Crops to harvest in June

Asparagus

The spears start appearing at the end of April and it keeps

cropping until June. Picking should stop by the 21st to allow

enough shoots to be left to unfurl and maintain the crown.

Asparagus is an easy crop to grow and look after, so don’t be

put off by having to wait a couple of years before you can start

harvesting. Once in, it’s surprising how fast those short years

pass, you will be picking asparagus for many years to come.

Broad beans and peas

You can sow some broad bean and hardy pea varieties in the

autumn for an extra early crop the following year, or sow

in early spring for summer harvests. Home-grown peas are

sweet and delicious and a great crop to sow in succession,

but remember that as soon as you pick a pod, the peas inside

will start losing sweetness, as their sugars turn to starch. This

happens with sweetcorn too, so if you are cooking them, they

need to go straight from plot to pot. Once harvested, leave the

base of leguminous plants in the ground and the nitrogenfixing

nodules in the roots will help feed the next crop.

Roots and tubers

Unearthing roots is a bit like digging for buried treasure,

except that it’s easy to slice through or prong them

on your fork as you lift potatoes, so go carefully

New potatoes – the first of the potatoes are the earlies;

these have a waxy texture, hold their shape well when

boiled and are the tastiest for salads. Varieties like

International Kidney (also known as Jersey Royals),

Arran pilot have an almost un-buyable flavour

Short carrots – small and stubby, but full of flavour and easy

to grow, these quick to mature carrots are great if you find that

the longer varieties fork and fang in your soil (it’s a common

and very frustrating problem with carrots). They are great

to grow in containers too. Try Chantenay, Early Nantes, or

‘Romeo’, a small round variety about the size of a radish.

Baby beetroot – you can be harvesting baby beets


Top left: Harvest beetroot from an early sowing, or sow some

more now Bottom left: Harvest an early sowing of Calabrese

thumbnail Middle right: Radishes Bottom right: Asparagus can

115 surrey-homes.co.uk


Garden

in 12-14 weeks of sowing, so this is another crop that

can be sown a few times in the year. Beetroot doesn’t

have to be red either – there are yellow varieties and

a very pretty one called Chioggia with candy striped

flesh that will look amazing sliced into a salad bowl.

Radishes – another quick ‘catch’ crop that can be sown

in-between the rows of slower growing vegetables,

such as leeks and parsnips, as the radishes will be long

gone before the slow crop starts needing the room.

Khol rabi – grow, like radishes between other crops, as

these are amazingly quick too. You eat the swollen stem

of this plant, which swells like a golf ball halfway down

the stalk. It tastes like a broccoli stalk (the part that many

children leave on their plates). Slice it into stir-fries or serve

in a cheese sauce if broccoli stalks aren’t your thing…

Leafy crops

As temperatures rise and the soil starts to dry out, many leafy

crops panic and rush into flower. Known as bolting, this is an

annoying habit and hard to prevent. There are ‘bolt resistant’

(boldly claimed on seed packets) varieties of some crops

available, but the best thing to do is to avoid growing cool

season plants like spinach, rocket, mustard and coriander at

vulnerable times of the year. Make an early sowing of these,

so that they are ready to harvest just before the hot, dry

weather starts and then you can sow another batch in July and

August to harvest in the autumn and first part of the winter.

Spinach – bolt resistant types are available, but try

sowing several lots for baby leaves, then a perpetual

variety later on in the year, which has bigger leaves (a

bit like chard) and will last for a long time, possibly

through the winter if cloched during the coldest days.

Rocket – if you grow wild rocket and it runs to seed,

just leave it to self-sow and you will have a continual

crop of peppery leaves to harvest for many months.

Mustards – many mustards self-sow too and these

are great leaves to add to both salads and stir-fries

Lettuce and salad leaves – harvest any lettuces

before they bolt in hot weather and sow some more

in a shadier part of the plot. The most resistant salad

leaves are loose-leaved lettuces like ‘Salad Bowl’ and

‘Lollo Rosso’. You can keep picking these and new

leaves will grow in a ‘cut and come again’ way.

Herbs

Coriander is notorious for running to seed almost as

soon as the first leaves appear, but there is a variety called

‘Cilantro’, or leaf coriander, which will just about manage

to contain its enthusiasm and withstand a few harvests.

Thyme, marjoram and mint should be picked while

young, before they start to flower – apparently the flavour is

strongest then. After flowering the sap may be slightly less

Parsley is a biennial, so last year’s plants will be giving

up about now. Sow some more or leave your old plants

to set seed and sow themselves around the place.

Second spring

Gaps will be appearing now that you have harvested

some of the crops, or if you are late to the plot, or

have only just decided to grow a few vegetables this

year. There are plenty of seeds to sow and plants to

grow to give you a harvest in the autumn and winter,

possibly even into the early part of next year.

It might be too late to sow leeks, tomatoes, squash and

to plant potatoes, but nearly everything else is worth a

try. In fact, bulb fennel should be sown after the Solstice.

Growth may slow after the 21st June and yields may be

smaller, but you will get a decent harvest and perhaps at

a more convenient time – it is annoying to be on holiday

just when all your hard earned work is beginning to bear

vegetables. Most of the leafy crops can be sown again now,

in fact the bolters (rocket, pak choi, spinach and beetroot

and some lettuces) may be better from a late sowing,

providing you keep them well watered in hot, dry weather.

Whatever the weather, whatever you have grown,

are growing, or might get round to growing, it is a

heartening time of the year to be outside and never too

late to start; in fact now could be the perfect time…

Wander around

the garden

Sue Whigham takes a stroll

around her own garden to pick

a few of her treasured plants

We walked through one of The Woodland

Trust’s small parcels of woodland early this

morning for the usual dog walk only to hear

the welcome sound of the cuckoo a few fields away

for the seventh time in as many days. It’s probably the

same male calling and what an evocative call he has.

Now that the bluebells are on the wane for this year,

they’ve been closely followed by Yellow Archangel, an

ancient woodland species in the lamium family (nettle).

The story is that they were called Archangel as they didn’t

sting! They’re worth investigating closely as whilst they have

a classic nettle leaf with toothed edges growing in pairs

up the stems, the butter-yellow flowers are so interesting,

resembling little ‘bubbles’ before they open out. And there

are markings or ‘honey guides’ on the flower for the benefit

of pollinating insects. Isn’t nature marvellous – designing

maps to guide the insect in – and, of course, once the

nectar is collected the pollen drops on to the plant’s stigma

and pollination takes place and so the cycle continues.

Making observations like this slow a woodland walk down

but isn’t it worth it. On the same walk I met someone

taking a picture of the most amazing fungus on a dead

chestnut stump. Seeing it quite made his day and mine.

After spending a winter spreading home-grown compost

on the beds and dramatically reducing the thicket of Rosa

‘Rambling Rector’ (don’t make the same mistake as we did

and plant up a tree. It is a very vigorous rambler) from a

long suffering apple tree and then clearing out rampant vinca

under the tree, the area finally looked decent enough to start

replanting. Hopefully, the canopy of the remaining rose won’t

be too dense now so plants happy in semi-shade will do well.

Then there was a bit of a spending spree at the

for Modern Applications

Archangel

Autumn Fair at Great Dixter and the Northiam Plant

Fair. We queued in the drizzle for half-an-hour at the

latter, but the variety of plants on offer made it so

worthwhile and there were plenty of people to talk to.

The first plants to go in have been three ferns whose

name is a bit of a handful. These are Coniogramme emeiensis,

introduced from the holy Mount Emei in the Sichuan

Province of China. They have quite spectacular tall,

branched, ribbon-shaped fronds with distinctive yellow

banding. My mistake, I think, was putting them in too

early and the result has been that they have been lashed

by the wind. They’re hardy to -15°C but I didn’t take into

account howling gales. The morning ritual now is to go

and check them and I see that a few croziers are making an

appearance on one of them. They grow to about four feet

so should make quite a statement when they eventually get

going. The thing is that the nights haven’t reached above

10°C this year as yet and this is holding things back.

And then there are the epimediums. I’m trying

E x warleyense and E x rubrum as ground cover in the

same area. The former is named after Warley Place

which was the home of the famous gardener, Ellen

Willmott. They should both bulk up and make good

ground cover. Epimedium x warleyense produces peach/

yellow flowers and has evergreen foliage. The heart

shaped leaves of E x rubrum is bronze when new which

contrasts beautiful with delicate crimson flowers on wiry

stems. They are so pretty and fairy-like. Epimediums can

become a bit of an obsession and I was glad to see an

article about them in the latest edition of The Garden.

What else has gone in there? Well, some aconites for

height and late season colour, a blue comfrey that my son

gave me and which he was busy ripping out – invasive but

a lovely blue. A few smaller ferns like the broad buckler

fern, Dryopteris affinis ‘Crispa Whiteside’. Oh, and a lovely

Japanese shrub, Kirengeshoma palmata, which is looking very

happy. Palmate foliage combines with dark stems and in the

autumn, lovely yellow bell-shaped flowers appear. It’s happy

in partial shade but the soil needs to be kept quite moist.

This ‘under the apple tree’ area will probably dry out

a bit, especially if we have another hot summer, so it’s

on the list to be kept well watered. We’ve also added

Actaea simplex ‘Brunette’ with its purply black leaves

and scented white flowers, a few interesting looking

foxgloves and the odd pink-yellow geum ‘Cosmopolitan’

(Cocktail series), which is happy in semi-shade.

And then there is another little treasure, purloined from

the marvellous Cotswold Garden Flowers nursery up at a

plant fair in Sutton Valence recently and recommended by

Rosemary Alexander, Principal of the English Gardening

School, who was also looking at the gems on the Cotswold’s

stand. Beesia calthifolia was discovered in China by the plant

hunter, George Forrest, in the early part of the 20th century,

and is interesting as it didn’t fit into any known genera so

was named after the nursery, Bees of Chester, who had hired

Forrest to bring in new specimens from the Far East. It wasn’t

in cultivation for long but was reintroduced by modern day

plant hunters, Bleddyn Wynn-Jones (Crug Plants) and Dan

Hinkley who spotted it in a Japanese nursery in the 1990s.

It’s a woodland plant; happy with a little bit of morning

sun and content with plenty of leaf mould to keep the soil

moist around it. It has beautiful heart-shaped, deeply-veined

leaves which are all shades of green. The flowers are star

shaped and a greenish white growing off wiry stems a little

like the epimediums I’ve mentioned. I’ve put it in a shadier

part of the garden where the canopy of the oaks soon fill

in and it’s a complete treasure. I can see that that’s another

one which will need a visit from the watering can regularly

or at least until it is well established. It is well worth a try.’

The only other thing to mention is this year’s tree.

It’s a large crab apple, Malus hupehensis. Why grow it?

Well, it is a vigorous and very beautiful tree. From pink

buds come fragrant white flowers followed by ‘cherry

like’ fruits. I love it, as it has such an abandoned looking

habit with branches spreading out in a rather relaxed

fashion. And yes, this is another one that will need to

be kept well-watered until it has settled in. Sorry to be a

killjoy, but I hope that this summer doesn’t break records

as last summer did. Otherwise there’ll be no time to

sit down and enjoy the fruits of being a plantaholic!

Legal

Crossing the Line

What happens when you find out that the boundaries of your property, and the

way you – or others – can access it aren’t quite as clear cut as you once thought?

Surrey Homes talks to the legal experts to find out...

Can a Right of Way be removed? Kellie Darke

from Kingsfords Solicitors explains...

“There are two ways a right of way can be created:

The first, expressed right of way is that which is created

by deed, i.e. by a legal agreement between parties, one

agreeing to let another access their land for a purpose. Such

a deed should then be recorded against both parties’ titles.

The second way is by prescription. Such a right may not

necessarily be revealed on the deeds and comes about

only by the access being used regularly over a length of

time. Specifically, if you can prove you, and if necessary

any predecessors, have freely enjoyed access over someone

else’s land without hindrance, payment, licence, secrecy

or dispute for over 20 years then the law provides that

you may be able to claim a prescriptive easement over

that land and title which can be registered on it.

Removing either type of these rights of way, however, can

be difficult. If the right is by deed or prescription and is

registered on the title, the only way to remove them is by

mutual agreement; to obtain the consent of the party that

has the benefit of the right of way, i.e. if your neighbour

has a right to cross the rear of your garden to access for

example a pathway, they would then enter into a deed of

release with you. This deed would then be registered against

both titles showing the removal of the right of way.

You will not easily be able remove a right that is registered

on your title without such agreement, even if the right

has not been used for many years. It is important to

remember that rights of way do not automatically become

extinct even through lack of use. And they can, technically,

be revived at any time by those benefitting from them,

even if they have been blocked by a fence for years.

If you do wish to pursue a claim that a right of way

should be revoked due to lack of use, it is very difficult.

Certainly you must be able to demonstrate that the

purpose for the right of way no longer exists and you

will also need to prove that those benefitting from the

right of way no longer have any use for it and even then

there is no guarantee such a claim would be successful.

If the claim is for a prescriptive easement and is not

yet registered against your title you will only be able to

prevent its registration if you can provide evidence that

the easement has not been used for over 20 years.

As you may imagine, such matters can cause bitter

dispute between neighbours and it is very important that

when purchasing a property you do not rely entirely on

the information contained in the deeds. As your solicitor

is unlikely to personally inspect the property, you are also

expected to rely on your own inspections. Therefore, ensure

that you do check the property for any signs of a right of way

being exercised and do not be afraid to ask the seller if you

suspect there is one – and certainly report it to your solicitors

as soon as possible for them to make further investigations on

your behalf.”

Education

The Great Outdoors

Hilary Wilce explores the benefits of forest schools

Not long ago, I was walking with a friend through

local woods when we came across a ring of tree

stumps and various hazel dens and rope swings.

“Oh, it’s probably the local primary’s forest school,” she said

casually as she marched on. I looked at her, astonished. This is

someone who has no contact with children or education, yet

she was completely familiar with the idea of a forest school.

What a contrast to 20 years ago when I travelled to South

Wales to visit one of the very first forest schools set up in this

country. Back then the idea that schools should send infants

out to play and learn in the woods was almost unheard of, but

the reality was enchanting. These were children from poor

estates, who had needed to be taught how to walk and run

on uneven ground because their parents were too frightened

even to let them loose in the local drug-infested parks. But

by the time I visited them they were covered in mud, reeking

of wood smoke and shrieking with glee as they made camps,

collected pine cones, stirred puddles and

generally behaved how small children should.

Since then thousands of forest schools have

been set up, in all kinds of different ways. If

schools don’t have land of their own, they partner

with nature trusts or nearby private schools to

make use of available woodland. Universities

and colleges run forest schools, and in cities, councils have

set aside patches of common for local schools to use. Private

set-ups have also got in on the act, offering high-end private

forest school experiences for parents prepared to pay. A few

forest schools are hard-core, full-time woodland institutions

with no indoor classrooms to retreat to, but most schools offer

something like a weekly half-day in the woods for every child.

But even a weekly taster brings great benefits. Children

grow in confidence, acquire new skills, learn to handle

risk, learn about nature, and get healthier by being

active in the woods. Very occasionally, children with

severe health or behaviour problems can’t handle the

weather or the freedom, but by and large schools say

all their children gain from the forest experience.

The biggest danger seems to be that the idea of a forest school

could become watered down by the bland British education

“The key thing

to remember

is that it’s all

about freedom”

machine. In Scandinavia, where the idea came from, there’s a

firm view that this should be a child-led experience, where pupils

are regularly turned out into the woods in all weathers, and over

a long period of time, to invent, explore and imagine. If this

involves risky things such as tree-climbing or penknife wielding,

then so be it. Here we tend to be more cautious, keeping one eye

on the weather and carefully shoe-horning forest school learning

into the national curriculum framework. A sad sign of this

was when Ofsted inspectors declined to label one forest school

excellent, because, the inspectors said, it offered no opportunities

for pupils to learn how to turn technical equipment on and off!

Even worse, some schools are climbing on to the bandwagon

by putting one staff member through forest school training,

then advertising themselves as forest schools even though

pupils do little more than occasionally walk in the park.

As summer comes in, it’s worth thinking how we can

replicate the benefits of forest schooling at home. The key

thing to remember is that it’s all about freedom.

Encourage children to go outside, make sure

they’re well-equipped for cold or wet, and then

leave them to it. If the possibilities of the garden

or park are limited, take them to the woods, or

the beach – then take a back seat as they invent

and explore. Obviously it’s important to keep an

eye out for safety concerns, but try your best not to fuss, forbid

or instruct. Children are naturally creative. Give them the time,

space and freedom to concoct their own games, to try out ideas,

and then to try out other ideas when the first ones don’t work.

If they seem reluctant to go outdoors, or listless when they get

there, give them a nudge or two. Propose a family game of hide

and seek, make up a treasure hunt, or suggest an activity like

constructing a den, or drawing in the sand. You’ll find thousands

of ideas for outdoor activities online. If your inner Boy Scout

or Girl Guide kicks in, you could build a fire and cook

marshmallows together, or pitch a tent and let older children

try and sleep outside for the night (they’ll probably come in).

Remember – all these things will teach children

more about themselves and the world around them

than any number of hours staring at a screen – and

they’ll be lots healthier and happier as well.

Jane Howard’s

Fables from

the Farm

Jane awaits the arrival of eggs at Coopers Farm

I

mentioned a couple of months ago that I was expecting

one or two of the hens to go broody and, bingo, Pam,

one of our Gold Laced Orpingtons has obliged.

No one is quite sure what makes a hen decide to go broody

but it’s a wonderful thing if you want more chickens and

an annoying habit if you want to maintain your backyard

flock and keep up egg production. To overcome this, some

clever bod created ‘hybrid’ hens that have had the broody

business bred out of them and the idea of motherhood

never enters their already very small brains. Needless to

say we don’t have hybrids, oh no, I was persuaded by

my daughter to buy Gold Laced Orpingtons, the Kim

Kardashians of the chicken world. They are big, beautiful

and blowsy (and, of course, much more expensive than

any of the others on offer) and definitely see motherhood

as a more sensible career option than laying a daily egg.

Left to their own devices, a hen thinking about going

broody will search out a safe, dark place in which to create

her nest and then visit it every day to lay until she has a

clutch of at least a dozen eggs. Then she plucks the feathers

from her breast and sits tight on the clutch

for 21 days while they develop into chicks.

However, our hens are in the habit of laying

their eggs in the nesting box and you can only

imagine how annoying it must be when yours

truly arrives every day to take them away. So

there she is, broody, with a neatly plucked breast

yet only one rather lonely egg to incubate.

But salvation is at hand! Google ‘fertile

hatching eggs’ and up come literally

hundreds of egg options, from all manner of

feathered friends. A wonderful online retail

opportunity, with the potential to become so much more.

I reckon our big girls can easily

manage a dozen, (although one is

always advised to give them an odd

number as this can more easily be

made into a perfect circle to sit on),

but what to choose? Cream Crested

Legbars with fabulous blue eggs,

“48 hours later

a package arrives

in the post with

the eggs swathed

in layers of

bubble wrap”

Copper Neck Marrans with very dark eggs or maybe something

exotic like a Sablepoot or a Polish Silkie that looks like it’s got a

bird’s nest on its head. Or maybe I should go off piste and get

some ducks (not convinced Pam would excel at teaching them

to swim!). Aaargh, decisions, decisions! In the end I plumped

for some chocolate-laced Bantam Orpingtons,

which is ridiculous really, gorgeous as they

are, as they won’t even lay a decent size egg!

Oh well, you pays your money and…

48 hours later a package arrives in the

post with the eggs swathed in layers of

bubble wrap. After being in transit with

the Post Office, they have to be still for a

day – known as setting – and then around

dusk, I pop down to the hen house and

slip them under Pam, who may be a little

surprised at the arrival of a dozen cold eggs

to add to her singleton. She soon gets them tucked under

her to warm up and as far as a chicken can be, seems

genuinely thrilled to have more than one to look after.

For 20 days she’ll sit tight on the eggs, revolving each round

and round under her so that it warms equally on all sides. And

then on Day 21 the magic begins. The eggs start to cheep,

which is a signal to Pam to stop sitting so tight and to give

them a bit more space to hatch out and dry off. And then for

about three or four months she’ll mother them with unceasing

care and attention, taking them round the farm and imparting

all her wisdom on how to be a successful hen – though

history dictates that more often than not most of the chicks

will be cockerels and their minds will be on other matters!
