Hampton Court

View from the courtyard to the gardens - look at the "mushroom" trees.
View of the gardens through the window of a "grace and favor" apartment.
Sunlights at the top of the stairwell leading to the "grace and favour" apartments.
When Hampton Court ceased to be a respite home for the royals, apartments were made in sections of the palace for those who had served the soveriegn; pensioners, military veterans and their families or survivors, etc.

Basket and a pulley in the stairwell leading to the grace and favour apartments.
