This Sunday sees the final open day at a garden containing some fantastic examples of statues and garden ornaments in Stourport, Worcestershire.
Astley Towne House garden has been holding open days throughout the summer as part of the National Gardens Scheme, whereby the public are being encouraged to visit the best of the UK’s gardens, and maybe take away some ideas of their own.
The garden took a decade to construct and will be open on Sunday 30 September, between 1pm and 5pm, before closing for the autumn and winter. It will be the last chance to experience its incredible sub-tropical plants, such as palm trees, exotic flowers and paths of real banana trees.
Garden ornaments include a woodland temple, a Classic Greek-style grotto decorated with shell mosaics and a water feature, plus many garden statues and a stumpery garden. When you’re tired of strolling, simply relax in its unique revolving neo-classical summerhouse!
