Luftwaffe spy photo reveals lost Tudor garden

I recently found an article on a German spy plane in 1944 taking secret photos of a lost Tudor garden. Obviously the Luftwaffe cameraman thought/hoped the oddly marked fields would have military significance. The reason this has come up now is because the National Trust requested copies of the photos from the U.S national archive within the last 6 months. There's a very interesting story behind this garden, which you can read here, even involving Catholicism and the Gunpowder Plot.
