Metcalfe's place

Walking around the Metcalfe house is much nicer, it seems, when all the ill-behaved, cricket-playing boys are in school.  When they aren't around, it's rather peaceful and nice to explore. 

The boat house and bridge that Thomas Metcalfe built were two things I wanted to find.
When he would host elaborate parties here, he would make sure the river entrance was lit up and he would receive visitors at the boathouse. 
There's no water left to show that there was ever a need for a boathouse or bridge.

But that's not unusual around the Metcalfe house--he built a lot of things that were out of place.
