Thelwell lived next to the river Test at Timsbury and the house could be 
Broadlands close by, the home of the late Lord Mountbatten. Remember Thelwell 
used artististic licence! I met him once and have fished the beat he owned.

Country pic query 
Hello all,
glancing through my copy of 'Thelwell Country' (1964) I noticed that Norman
Thelwell does some very good drawings of trees in the countryside etc.

This one in particular caught my eye on p23 of the book, and shows a rather
lovely looking Cedar in front of a mansion house (if the attached scan has
come through OK that is).

Does anyone know where this house is?  And if so, is the Cedar tree still
there?

The little sign at the foot of the steps says ' National Coal Board Area
Office'.

many thanks
Bettina
