2.00pm Northbury Farm, Ruscombe RG10 9XJ £10.00
In the afternoon, a short distance away; we are very fortunate to have been able to arrange a visit to Sir Colin & Lady Southgate’s garden. Northbury Farm is a beautiful 16th century farmhouse that was restored in the late eighties. The gardens have been developed over the last 20 years when an ancient oak and a venerable Cornus mas together with a few other mature trees and an abundance of Leylandii (all gone!) were all that were noteworthy. The garden is now broken up into several separate areas, the cottage garden, the herbaceous garden, the rose garden a shrub & general area and a modern section with grasses and a Japanese garden. Behind this the garden opens into a less formal area with woodland and a stream and pond. Althogether there are over 1500 different species of plants spread over the 12 acres.
Our hosts are kindly offering tea within the entry price.
We have a maximum number of 32 places available here so you may opt for both or one of the above but we must have firm numbers.
