Estates News:

Bedroom 4 at WLP is now complete, a fantastic improvement involving a 90˚ switch of the bed, TV mounted above the fireplace and a new paintwork scheme in a much warmer colour than before. [pic below left]
Bedroom 49 at WLP has received new chairs, and the room remains my favourite due to the superlative views on two sides over the Enfield Chace. [pic left]
