Visit to Broadward Hall Gardens

Visit to Broadward Hall Gardens by kind invitation of Mrs Caro Skyrme.

Please book by Friday 12th July.

Broadward Hall is a Grade II listed building, being largely a 19th Century remodeling of an 18th Century Country House, with a castellated Gothic appearance. Over the last two decades the owners have been sympathetically reviving the garden. We will see the first stage of renovation of the Victorian walled garden, the Victorian pump house and the site where a Bronze Age hoard was discovered in the mid-nineteenth century (now in the British Museum).

The walled garden houses the National Collection of Hemerocallis (day lilies). An important historic collection bred between 1959 and 1979 by three English breeders, Brummitt, Coe and Randall and originally collected by Gerald Sinclair. There are more than 65 cultivars, creating a wonderful display.

Directions: Equidistant between Leintwardine and Clungunford. Take the A49 from Ludlow and turn off at Ludlow food centre through Bromfield. Follow the road to Leintwardine and head towards Clungunford. Between Leintwardine and Clungunford cross grade II listed Broadward Bridge. Broadward Hall will be visible across parkland. Entrance gate lodge on left.
