Restoring the glasshouse at Croft Castle

A sign for the 1908 glasshouse at Croft Castle in Herefordshire

Our gardeners and their volunteer team have nearly finished restoring the 1908 glasshouse and its adjacent buildings in the walled garden.

The garden team have been working on the restoration of the Edwardian glasshouse for just over 12 months and there is still some more work to be done.
 
The glasshouse dates from 1908 and was made by J. Weekes & Co. botanical engineers of London. It is due to have a fresh coat of paint this year which should make it look stunning. We are planning to grow a lot more exotic species to give more of a hothouse feel to the place and hopefully we will get the sunny weather to go with it.
 
Poke your head inside the building just outside the glasshouse and see if you can spot some original graffiti left behind by the gardeners who were here 100 years ago.
