Summer Kitchen

The ruins of an English manor house in Cowdray park, on the edge of the town of Midhurst in West Sussex are graceful in their decay, ghosts of more splendid time. The house was built with the kitchen tower separate as to protect the rest of the manor from a cooking fire. When the estate burned in 1793, only the kitchen remained, and still does to this day, it almost looks as if it is ready to start cooking a banquet for Elizabeth I or Henry VIII, two visitors who once graced its halls.
