An afternoon visit to Wormsley Walled Garden, near Stokenchurch, is taking place on 7th August.
It has been organised by Haddenham Horticultural Society but is open to anyone who would like to attend.
Unfortunately the estate manager there has now asked us for final numbers by next Wednesday (17th July) so if you are interested in attending please let me know a.s.a.p. by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01844 291490.
Please also let me know whether you are willing to drive or need a lift.
The Walled Garden dates back to the mid-1700s, when the original garden was created by Richard Woods — a contemporary of Capability Brown. Neglected for the best part of a century, the gardens were brought back to life by celebrated garden designer Penelope Hobhouse.
On arrival Head Gardener Charlotte Tremlin will give a short talk on the history of the garden. She and other members of the garden team will be on hand to answer any questions.
The cost is just £6 per person (pay by cash or by cheque made out to Haddenham Horticultural Society, via Gay Jordan at 13 Gibson Lane).
Meet at 1.35pm in the Haddenham Village Hall car park for departure at 1.45pm. The tour starts 2.30pm.
