Rymans - The end of the avenue
Rymans - The end of the avenue
The remarkable SU8403 : Avenue of Black Poplars culminates at its northern end in a rough circle of poplars, a section of which can be seen here. Black Poplars are comparatively rare in Britain outside of the Vale of Aylesbury, so this avenue and circle represent an unusually large collection of them.
Rymans (Apuldram)
Rymans is a beautiful old house in the village of Apuldram (sometimes spelt Appledram) southwest of Chichester. The house dates from about 1410 and was built by William Ryman whose name is still associated with it. He was a prominent merchant and lawyer who became a Knight of the Shire (of Sussex) in 1420 and Sheriff of Sussex in 1434.
The Ryman family continued to own and live here until 1654 when it was sold to Thomas Smith of Binderton. The Smiths lived here until 1730 when it passed by marriage to the Bartellot family who owned it until 1913. The C20th saw the house change hands several times, and fortunately it was sensitively restored by the owners, in particular the current owner who has worked closely with English Heritage.
The house is set in magnificent and extensive gardens which are occasionally open to the public for Charity as part of the National Gardens Scheme LinkExternal link - and are well worth a visit when they are. The photos taken around the garden here were taken on such an open day.
Note that the house is a private residence and is not open to the public, and the gardens only on the aforementioned occasions. Not surprisingly, the house is EH Grade I listed (see listing here LinkExternal link )
Pevsner in "The Buildings of England - Sussex" was much taken by this old house and in particular the way that the windows let differing amounts of light into different parts of the house to suit their purpose.
