Garden Restoration Success Stories

It is always uplifting to be able to report success stories, just as it is depressing to tell of gardens that are under threat or which have suffered loss.

Into the former is this story in The Telegraph which features nine gardens to visit that have recently been restored thanks to a variety of funding sources, including the Heritage Lottery Fund.

One thing, though, the links on The Telegraph pages do not all take you direct to the page relating to the garden, the ones below, however, do.

The gardens nine are:
  1. Wrest Park in Bedfordshire.
  2. Lowther Castle and Gardens in Penrith.
  3. Victoria Park in London E2.  Which I also mentioned earlier in the year.
  4. Springhill in Moneymore, Co. Londonderry.
  5. Festival Gardens in Liverpool.
  6. Hackfall in North Yorkshire.
  7. Botanic Garden in Oxford,.
  8. Myddleton House in Enfield.
  9. Battersea Park Old English Garden London (and Friends of Battersea Park).
