Welcome

Welcome

A conservation charity working to protect the county's many historic parks and gardens for future generations.

We work with garden owners and local and national bodies to highlight, protect and encourage the conservation and restoration of designed landscapes, ranging from stately homes to public parks, cottage gardens to cemeteries. Principally funded by over 450 members, we run visits, lectures and events where members can share their interest and knowledge in a sociable atmosphere. Read More »
