It’s our anniversary month! Thank you to everyone who came and supported us on the 21st with our day of behind the scene talks and tours. This month we welcomed six Tamworth pigs, survived the terrible snow and still managed to plant our terraces. We also started our tasty scone of the week.

Project work continued on as we opened the Tower of the Winds, completed new pathways and relined the chimneys in Park Farm House. We started the new season as we opened the Mansion back in time for February half term.

The New Year saw a lot of preparation. The project to return the south Walled Garden from the Council began and the gardeners began removing harmful plants and bushes to clear the views across the gardens. We carried out a volunteer campaign and have almost 300 amazing volunteers supporting us. The gardens showed signs of spring with snowdrops blooming and the gardeners planted thousands of bulbs.
