Caption for Abinger Common, Wotton House, the Hunt c1965
The diarist John Evelyn described
the 'delicious streames and
venerable Woods' around
Wotton. He was born in Wotton
House in 1620 and inherited it
later in the century; he died in
1706 and was buried in the fine
parish church, which is isolated
in the fields north of the A25.
Some of the house he knew
remains, but most of it is now
Victorian, providing a backdrop
for one of the Frith
photographers' favourite themes:
the hunt (not a theme likely to
be a postcard best-seller today).
Since this photo was taken the top of the large tree in the background has been hit by lightning. Around four or five feet of bare wood sticks out at the top of the tree. I don’t know when this happened.
