The changes that took place at Sorrel cottage and its garden between 1980 and 2002 are plotted in the given diagrams.
It is clear from the diagrams that the purchase of two plots of land enlarged the garden considerably. The one adjacent to the Southern border was bought in 1983 and almost equaled in size the original garden. Then in the year 1985 the area covered by the garden was effectively doubled by the acquisition of another on the Eastern border.
Between 1986 and 1988, an extension was built on to the Southern side of the cottage and in the following year an orchard was planted in the Northern part of the land acquired in 1985. The year 1990 saw two additions to the property: a pond in the original garden and a vegetable garden on the other side of the garden from the orchard. In 1996, two lines of trees were planted, one along the Southern edge of the garden and the other above the orchard. An open air swimming pool was built in the land purchased in 1983 between 2000 and 2001.
