Lilacs At Winstanley Grove

Yes, lilacs still bloom at Winstanley Grove. The most obvious sign that long ago somebody lived out here in the middle of all this wild land. Possibly planted by Arthur Nevard when he established his log dwelling on the site in the early 1900s. Or maybe by his wife, Margaret Montagu Winstanley who the farm was named after.
Along with a few honeysuckles and carraganna, a cellar hole in the ground and the crumbling concrete remains of the barn foundation, there is not much else to indicate that people lived here.
