older. Note the garlands on the wall of the gardens.

William Shakespeare lived in New Place from about 1610 until his death in 1616. It was an
impressive brick building,  the second largest in Stratford at the time. After Shakespeare died, the
house was sold to an eccentric gentleman, the Rev Francis Gastrell who, wishing to avoid taxes,
knocked the house down. This so annoyed Stratford residents that they drove him out of the town
and banned anyone with the name Gastrell from ever living in Stratford. Hence today we can only
see some of the foundations, and no doubt there are very few Gastrells in the town !
