I recently visited Nassenheide, the setting for the book by Elizabeth von Arnim (1898), which was then in Germany.

The garden (or site of) is now in Poland and the original Schloss, or castle, a heap of overgrown rubble. However, enough remains of the original outbuildings and land to make it worth while to researchers. The land is now sold and the buyer unknown. Would anyone be interested in helping to do something to record what remains before it is possibly destroyed?

Many famous visitors went to the garden, including E M Forster and Hugh Walpole. It is a piece of our heritage and would be worth investigating.
