In 1980 when the work of restoration began the lawn area was a mass of self sown grasses, saplings etc. (cf) When work began on the lawn, a decision was taken to use traditional methods, and so the painstaking work of levelling the ground before sowing one section at a time was undertaken, as these photographs show. At this stage there was no attempt to reinstate the flower beds either down the centre or along the West side.
