Our next events are:

A self-drive trip to Ashburnham Place on Thursday, 5th July at 2pm, with a guided tour given by the Head Groundsman. The tour generally takes in the ornamental gardens, walled kitchen garden and the history of our grounds and gardens. The grounds were landscaped by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown in the 1760s and retain much of their style from this time with later additions providing terraced areas and formal gardens. Anyone not wishing to walk the whole tour, expected to be about 1 ½ hours, will be given access to either the Orangery or Oak Dining room.

The tour will be followed by a cream tea, which includes a plain or fruit scone with cream, jam & butter and tea or filter coffee, or an option of homemade cake if you prefer.

All for the cost of only £5 per WHS or HUB members, or £9.25 for non-members.
