Lanhydrock, Bodmin AGM, Talk & Garden Tour

Friday 15th May 2020 11:30am

Situated 8 miles inland and rising to 130m above sea level, the plants at Lanhydrock have to cope with a harsher climate than many of south Cornwall’s coastal gardens. 

Although there has been a garden at Lanhydrock since the 1600’s, the present layout was established in the Victorian period. There are formal parterres and paths wandering through woodland with stunning stands of rhododendrons, magnolias and camellias. Other features include the Herbaceous Circle, Borlase’s stream and Magnolia Arch.

The day will commence with our AGM to be held in Lanhydrock Memorial Hall at 11.30 a.m. This will be followed by a talk delivered by Paul Holden, on the subject of the social history and relationship between the house and garden at Lanhydrock. 

A light lunch will be provided immediately following the talk. We will then drive to Lanhydrock, and gather at the Gatehouse, for a tour of the garden by one of the head gardeners, George Allen, commencing at 2pm.

Cost: £10.00 for talk and light refreshments. 

Entry to Lanhydrock free for National Trust members, £16.45 for non-members of NT. 

Garden tour is free if attending AGM & talk. Dogs on leads welcome. 

Parking is free for NT members and £1 per hour or £4 for the day for non-members
