Winkworth Arboretum and West Green House and Gardens are National Trust properties and if you are not a member you can pay an entrance fee. The Savill Garden is part of the Crown Estate and has an entrance fee for non members, payable at the entrance.

I really hope you enjoy my wanders and will come back again. I featured West Green House and Gardens in a blog a few years ago which was taken up by West Green’s owner and added to their website. The history of the house and gardens is really interesting. Since then The National Trust has taken over the garden.

      • Thank you, yes we will definitely visit them and I shall take a look at your posts covering visits to other places. It’s great to hear first hand about places that I haven’t been to before. Thanks again and I hope that you are staying safe and well too.

        • Yes, being restricted is such a pain and I hope as soon as things get better you can visit some of these wonderful places. I have lots I still need to write up and too many photos…I take hundreds and picking a few to use is so hard. We need to stay positive and hope that soon things will change and the horrid masks will soon be history. Hate wearing them. Keep well, and let me know if you venture somewhere nice. xx

    • Liz, I love walking and always end up walking way too many photos. I tried to see the name tag on the tree but it was hard to get to. Next time I go I shall look again and see if I can read it and let you know. I love the way it looks so tactile.

      • Phones and digital cameras make the taking of way too many photos way too easy. In the film days, when we came to the end of the roll, that was it. No more pictures. I’ll look forward to learning what the strange twisty tree is called.

        • Liz, I know what you mean. It used to be so expensive buying and developing film, though often we got two copies of all photos, even blurred ones! I wish I had had a phone camera when on tour in USA/Europe and SE Asia with bands etc., because time was tight and often the schedule did not allow for shopping for film and so I missed photographing so many places. If I had had a phone camera I am sure I would have managed a quick click even from a moving tour bus or limo. Oh well. Now I have a computer filled with thousands of images as well as dozens of photo albums.
