A garden lost in time

by David, Penny

Condition: As new/No Jacket

Seven Dials (Cassell), 2000. 1st paperback edition. Paper covers with wrap-around flaps. As new/No Jacket. The story of a very ambitious garden restoration project, based on intensive archaeology and historical research, is told in this somewhat chaotic book which aptly matches the disorder of its subject. After centuries of periodic neglect and refurbishment and a bizarre succession of owners, this very run-down garden finally fell under the care of the Aberglasney Restoration Trust. With substantial financial backing from charitable and public bodies and a huge voluntary effort by enthusiasts, this intriguing garden is once more able to enthrall a new generation of visitors.
