Welcome to Cheshire Gardens Trust and our newly redesigned website which we hope you enjoy visiting. We plan to make further amendments and continue adding to it with additional information so would welcome your views and comments. Please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are an organisation of volunteers who care about Cheshire’s rich heritage of parks, gardens and designed landscapes. Our membership encompasses those who simply enjoy visiting gardens to professional designers, horticulturalists and historians. Visits and talks run throughout the year where we visit parks and gardens, meet gardeners, owners and designers for that ‘inside’ view and understanding. Join us for an event as a visitor or as a new member and find out about your county’s gardens.
John Claudius Loudon and his wife, Jane Webb Talk by Simon Gulliver 11th January
Following Simon’s excellent talk on Ernest Wilson in spring of 2019, Simon was due to return to share his enthusiasm for a Victorian gardening double act of a lady gardener and science fiction novelist and her Scottish landscape gardening husband. Unfortunately this talk scheduled in March had to be cancelled due to COVID and the resulting lockdown. We are pleased, however, that Simon is willing to deliver this talk virtually.
Owing to the current emergency, events have been cancelled, but be assured events planning continues.
