Our volunteers are a talented bunch – here, John and Stephen are making great progress installing a ramp into the Italian Garden so that volunteers can wheel their barrows in and out and avoid bumping up and down the newly restored steps!

We were visited today by the grandson and great-grandson of the Countess of Warwick’s head gardener in the early 1900s. After his career in gardening he emigrated to Australia and then fought for the allies. Our visitors brought from Australia copies of old photos for our archive; and loved seeing the Gardens as they now are!
