Programme of Garden Visits

There is always an interesting and full programme of garden visits.  Places are always limited and often fill up quickly. Visits are announced in the Newsletter and bookings are by post only. Details will be enclosed with the Newsletter. From 2012, due to the high demand for garden trips, only members will be able to apply in the first instance. Guests will be placed on a waiting list. After 6 weeks from the date of member application, guests will  be allocated any remaining places.

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.
