As advised by Nicole and Paul, I'm posting here to get some help.

Short version: For the purpose of my lecture, I'm looking for a good, preferably hi resolution picture of Allerton Abbey and another one of the hugel berm built by Wheaton Labs.

Full story: I’m currently working on Chapter 12 (Humid Cool to Cold Climates)  of the first online PDC course in Polish, for Polish audience.

In this chapter, I talk about housing, and I mention Wofati and ATI topic. I talk about two cool dudes, Mike Oehler and Paul Wheaton as well, providing my students with links to the works of both in a bonus section of the course. I wanted to illustrate this talk with a picture of a facade of Allerton Abbey. I think it would be cool to show it to my students. I have asked Paul for permission to use his photo, and permission was granted (thanks!)

Later on, in the gardening section, I talk about hugelculture. I provide my students with a link to article on permies.com about it, but I would like very much to illustrate my slide with a picture of huge hugel berm at Wheaton Labs. Permission was granted as well (thanks again).

In both cases I have made screenshots from Paul's YT videos, one showing Allerton Abbey, second showing the hugel berm. The problem is that resolution of this screenshots is a bit too low. A preferable size of the picture would be 3840 x 2160 or higher.

I’m wondering if someone could help me to find such pictures.

The course is published on Teachable, with sample free lessons and trailers available on YT as well, here. It is still work in progress, with 9 chapters already published, 3 in the making and 2 more to go, to cover a full curriculum of PDC (the Big Black Book).

Many thanks for your assistance!

Some of the boot threads from 2019 might have good pictures of the exterior of the abbey.  Not sure which boots were taking photos up there at that time.  Maybe Jen, Josiah or Dave Burton?

Josiah's got some great pictures. I'd actually dredged them up two nights ago for you...but then the power went out before I could post them!
