NGGC September - Prehen House
myself and kids venture forth into pure history
September saw the Non-Gardeners Gardening Club take a sunday morning stroll around the grounds of the fabulous Prehen House, you can read more about the house here on the official website, Prehen House is unmissable....you have to go there at least 3 times to get it all in...trust me..go and you'll see what I mean!! The pictures below give a flavour of the trip...but the stories are too plentiful, the images too many, the history to great to give it justice.....just go! (click on any pic for enlargement)
fabulous espallier pears
and after spending some 2 hours being generously toured around the home by Colin Peck, we ventured into the gardens....and we were in for a treat, some 8 acres of walled gardens, courtyards, outbuildings and ancient woodland...Soo much to see here...another day is needed to see it all...the pics do it no justice....you have to go!
Prehen House is an inspiring place, I'm delighted to have visited it and honoured to have such a genrous host in Colin Peck to guide the group around. Prehen House is open for tours, dinner parties and theme nights all year round, details can be found on their website. Also large allotments are available within the walled garden for £50 per year...again contact details on their website for this too. Folks, make it one of your 'things to do' and visit Prehen House!
