Alan, the gardens at East Ruston have good disabled access, so if you could beg, borrow or steal a mobility scooter I don't think there's any parts that you'd not be able to access - we'll leave it with you - keep an eye on the thread - after all, I think Kate deserves some civilised company even if you were tagging along
