Issue Date: 10/07/2001

Issue Name: Pond Life - Scotney Castle Garden

Producer: Buckingham Covers

 

A classic from our first Series. When Royal Mail issued stamps called "Pond Life" in 2001, we were inspired by the fabulous lake at Scotney Castle. This stunning cover was officially produced with the National Trust and what's more, the Ground Force team all agreed to sign it!

It was in fact, only the 10th first day cover we have ever produced. Because of this, it doesn't have all the niceties of our covers today. Signed editions do not have labels on the reverse (we started this in 2005) for example. But this is part of the charm. Our style may have evolved but the design still has the hallmark of Buckingham quality.

Scotney Castle

Scotney Castle, fondly known as "one of the Seven Wonders of the Weald" is a ruined fortification in Lamberhurst, Kent in the South East of England. It's popular with tourists not just for the building itself but also for the picturesque grounds and the romantic setting.

The gardens have spectacular displays of Rhododendrons, azaleas and Kalmia. Wisteria and rambling roses cover the ruins in Summer and trees and ferns provide rich autumn colours.The lakeside setting and a thatched ice-house complete the romance.
