The honeysuckle bedecked seat seen ahead is at the end of the drive which sweeps round the front of SP5077 : Brownsover Hall Hotel - from its southern gardens
The perfume from the honeysuckle was beautiful, particularly in the evening.

Brownsover Hall

Brownsover Hall was built in the mid C19th by Sir George Gilbert Scott for the then-owners the Ward-Boughton-Leigh family. It is principally of red brick with stone dressings and blue brick patterns (some of which look rather like space invaders!) and is in the Victorian Gothic style.
Between 1936 and 1942 it was the home of famous inventor, Sir Frank Whittle, inventor of the jet engine.
In the 1970s it was converted into a hotel, which it still is. Including those in various annexes (such as the stables) it has 47 bedrooms. It is set within 7 acres of landscaped grounds which are bounded on the western side by the disused Brownsover Arm of the Oxford Canal. The nearby Swift Valley nature reserve can be accessed via the canal towpath exterior to grounds.
