Anglesey Abbey Gardens
In the 1930s, Lord Fairhaven used his fortune to transform the grounds of the 900 year old Abbey. He created tree-lined avenues and wide, open areas of lawns that feature Britain's finest collection of 17th and 19th century garden statuary. In March you can stroll along the mile long Fairhaven Centenary Walk amongst the birch trees enjoying the first signs of Spring in between hellebores of every colour. In 1966 the house and gardens became the property of the Nation Trust.
