"A must for all interested in archaeology or gardening"
The Lost Gardens Of Heligan
First World War, the estate gardens of Heligan ('The Willows' in Cornish)
were one of Cornwall's glories, but after the Great War the Tremayne
family abandoned them. They remained in a state of decay until Tim Smit,
John Nelson and a dedicated team restored the gardens. They are now the
most visited private gardens in Britain.
These are a
fascinating insight into how the Lost Gardens of Heligan were found and
restored. You meet the people who are responsible and you are shown how
different parts of the gardens were restored together with footage of the
garden before restoration was started - and what a difference they made!
You don't need to have visited Heligan to be able to appreciate this, you
just need to have a love for either archaeology or plants, or both!
