New for 2015 – Springtime Gardens Walk

Sunday, March 29, 2015

Our Education department provides a year round programme of walks in the parkland, woodlands, gardens and pleasure grounds.

Join Head Gardener Martin Gee as he takes you on a tour of the gardens here at Weston as they wake up for Spring.  Generations of the Bridgeman family have left their legacy on the estate through all the prevailing gardening fashions of the time from formal lines to wide open Pleasure Grounds.

Over the last two years Martin and his team have also created two new gardens; Lady Anne’s Memorial Garden and the restoration of Lady Joan’s Garden of Memory in Temple Wood.  Sisters to the 6th Earl, Lady Joan died in a tragic riding accident aged only 19 whilst her sister Lady Anne went on to create ‘Broadleas’ garden in Wiltshire which paid homage to her love of flowering trees. These gardens have now matured and Martin will give walkers a wonderful insight into these projects and how and why the gardens were created.

Our Garden Walk starts at 10.30am with admission payable on the day.
