A visit to the beautiful gardens at Miserden in Gloucestershire
On Tuesday, 20th July we have arranged a visit to Miserden near Stroud in Gloucestershire.
The Miserden estate, including 850 acres of woodland, farmland and gardens, overlooks the Golden Valley and is in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The walled garden, which won the 2018 Historic Houses Garden of the Year Award, has magnificent views over a deer park and the Cotswold Hills beyond. First laid out in the 17th century, the garden includes yew hedges, a topiary walk designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens, and impressive mixed borders.
Guild members are invited to arrive from 9.15am and the visit will start at 10 with a short introduction to the garden. We are free to explore independently although head gardener Alex will be on hand to answer questions. The garden is closed to the public on the day of our visit so we will have it all to ourselves. There will be no catering facilities so please do bring your own picnic. This visit is free to Guild members and there are no restrictions on photography. Depending on the demand for places it may be possible to bring a visitor, at a charge of £10 (to be paid in advance).
To book your place, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, 14th June and indicate whether you want to bring a guest.
