Just to add my 4d worth [anyone under the age of 40 ask your parents about d's]to the comments about the restoration. For many years a visit back to school was something that provoked melancholy, but now, my spirits are lifted to see not only the old place looking good as new, but to appreciate that there are still skilled craftsmen and women and far sighted and gifted developers and architects, even in this techno age of web speak and WII.
I never saw the Grey Lady, but spent many happy hours watching swans land on the lake, and Mrs. Harrison tending her Hydrangers. Much more rewarding than O' levals
