Capt Jon V Vincent (19 October 2013)
I was a pupil at Wotton House in the mid 1950s, I remember the lake and swimming and fishing them in the summer and skating on them in the winter. My dorm was on the first floor, on the left rear of the main, house. The main library was always full of marvelous books. Also remember the cold Sunday walks to the Chapel down the hill. All happy memories. When the school failed I went to Hurstpier Point College, Hassocks, Sussex. I am retired now living in the Ozarks on the White River in Northern Arkansas, USA. another long story but would love to visit the house again. I have always felt privileged to have been in such a beautiful house.

As a small child I spent many happy times with my grandparents who lived at Grenville cottage from 1916 until they died in1942. They are both buried in the churchyard at Wotton and my sister and I were both baptized there. My grandfather, John (Jack) Peet was head gamekeeper there. We spent a lot of time in the grounds and on the estate. I loved every minute of it. Michael has done grand job in the grounds and is restoring the area as I remember it. My mother was an Edmans born at Clearfields Farm. After their marrige my parents moved to Buckingham and granddad would come and collect me in his car. I even remember travelling there from Buckingham by train to Verney Junction,change to Quainton Road and then on the Brill Tram to Woodsiding! What a journey, all for the sake of about 12 miles! Wotton holds a lot of lovely memories for me. Diana Poole, nee Peet.
