The northern end of the Recreation Ground is particularly attractive these days, looking out over the church and churchyard.

The War Memorial in the north-east corner of the churchyard. Behind the cross on the left shot is the churchyard Yew and in the right-hand shot is catering for the gardens event that weekend.

The south side of the churchyard is a public footpath, DINT2, and is the approximate line of the old burial path from Teffont. You can look down to the lake, now kept clear of intrusive vegetation on the shoreline ... and Hyde's House.

Dinton appeared to be well on top at 6.30 of a lovely Saturday evening; at least the other lot were getting grumpy! Beyond the Recreation Ground is the expanded Primary School, and the newer housing of Tyndale Meadow ... with Compton woods and Downs beyond.

     

Looking out over the natural meadows of Dalwood Farm, next to the camp site of Honeysuckle Homestead.

The church of St Mary's taken from just outside Dinton Lodge, a world-class view!

Dinton or Philipps house in the morning sunshine. The National Trust have, to their great credit, opened up a number of footpath routes across their properties in Dinton. One leads the walker from near to Hyde's house up through the woodland to this viewpoint of Philipps House.

Taking the footpath DINT5 from opposite the churchyard, you get to look back at the houses that front onto Snow hill and St Mary's Road. The new build in what was Wright's Farm ,left,  has grounds on a scale and form to resemble a golf course!

The view from Sandhills Road across the fields of East Farm towards Orchard Terrace ... with the new communications mast on the skyline and a pair of hot-air balloons as well! My birth-place was in the front bedroom of No. 1 Orchard Terrace!

The redevelopment of the Pembroke Terrace site is complete, now with

Left and right of Jesses, centre, is the house occupied by the author of 'Tales of a Carter's Daughter', Lou Winter, nee hacker. An ugly grey render facade was stripped by Mr Bishop to reveal this stunning cottage.
