England was buffeted by gale force winds and
torrential rain on the 29th and 30th of October. Both greenhouses suffered
severe, terminal damage This photograph is of
the damage to the larger greenhouse and was taken from the inside on the
afternoon of 1st November 2000.
The damage doesn't look too bad from this angle, you could be forgiven for
believing that it was only some broken glazing. Unfortunately this damaged
glass allowed the high winds into the structure, the pressure built up
... as you can see on this shot, which was taken on the
afternoon of 1st November 2000
this blew out the opposite side of the greenhouse, snapping the main
supports and smashing much of the glazing.. This structure is now very
unsafe, it moves dangerously at the slightest breathe of wind, and I have
had to remove all the plants and store them in outhouses and any other
rooms that I can utilize until I can make other arrangements. The weather

This shot was taken on the afternoon of Saturday
4th of November. We'd removed all the glass from the roof of the
first greenhouse and were ready to begin removing the glazing from the
sides. We took great care in doing this because the structure was very
unsafe and we didn't want it to fall down and break even more glass.
This shot was taken on that same afternoon of Saturday
4th of November. We'd now removed all the glass from the sides and
dismantled the frame. The timber is now stacked on the garden ready for
burning. By chance the 5th of November is Guy Fawkes Night (Guy, with his
fellow plotters, tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament) and people
across the country light bonfires, burn effigies of Guy Fawkes and have
firework displays. So this year I'll make my bonfire with this timber from
with questions or comments about this web site.
