Another garden restoration to report on, this time in Wales. The neglected grounds of the Bishop's Palace in Abergwili, Carmarthenshire are going to receive a whopping £1.2 million facelift, according to the Camarthen Journal.  

The gardens surround the Palace which is home to the Camarthenshire Museum, and the Welsh Historic Gardens Trust (WHGT) which is leading the project  has  secured funding to commission specialist reports to explore ways in which the grounds may be rescued and revitalised.

Following this there will be a further grant application to secure the funds to enable the physical work which will, according to Judith Holland of WHGT "conserve and revitalise the Bishop's Park, the walled kitchen garden and portions of the great meadow and the Bishop's pond." 

Lets keep our fingers crossed that the funding comes through!
