Gardeners potting room

Walking around Calke Abbey gardeners was fantastic. Bright flower beds and well designed vegetable gardens. I took many photographs but this was one many others missed. In the middle of the garden is a large brick house. I assume this would have been the head gardeners home. Walking up to a dark doorway it felt like I was stepping back in time. I looked through to find the head gardeners office. Scenes like this with the old, rusting tools hanging up are great record photographs. The crumbling plaster and paint on the wall behind add to the feeling of stepping back in time 100 years.
