Watlington House, Reading; a garden for the future with a link to the past - Virtual Open Garden - NGS
The Geoff Hill Memorial Garden at Watlington House in Reading, Berkshire is an attractive walled garden belonging to the oldest residential Grade II* house in Reading. Using archival research, the Watlington House Trust led by Trustee and garden designer Gaila Adair worked to bring the garden back to life. Borrowing from the past to create a garden fit for purpose in the 21st century they have transformed the rather uninspiring car park into a peaceful space for workers at the house, the community and for visitors. While it will not open for the National Garden Scheme in 2020 you can enjoy a virtual visit with us now:
The National Garden Scheme gives visitors unique access to over 3,500 exceptional private gardens in England and Wales, and raises impressive amounts of money for nursing and health charities through admissions, teas and cake.
