It's been awhile since Pepys mentioned the Forest of Dean. It popped up
today in the New York Times online, which led me to this site w/ pics
the timely-named house, but no trees marked with the King's arrow..

Victuals Grove: Modern English Country House
The New York Times 11.5.08
Would you like to cook in an octagonal kitchen with an octagonal stove
28 acres of private forest about 100 miles west of London? Victuals [
VIT-tells ] Grove is a modern home in the Forest of Dean. Designed by
British architects and brothers Bob and Tim Organ in the 60s, the home
embraces the surrounding forest landscape. The New York Times shows us
unique country house and gives us a brief history of the octagonal
3,400-square- foot home...
Another home made mostly from cinder block! Check out the full story,
England, a Modern Home in an Ancient Forest and all the pictures in the
slideshow — the homes forest surrounding [sic] are extraordinary!
