Thanks Peter, I was quite tempted to go with the formal look of the garden but the evidence of the Craan and Siborne diagrams suggests that by 1815 the layout had been greatly simplified. This picture is a nice imagining but was done a century after the events in question.

Dear All,

Here are some update photos from my Hougoumont project. I've now had the pleasure of taking advice from two eminent Waterloo historians, Andrew Field and Gareth Glover. There's still much to do, but it's coming on. More on my blog at: http://generalpicton.blogspot.com

Glorious! I think I can see why you would be running out of casualty figures.

The garden looks terrific. As do the wood, and apple orchard. BB
