PGG AGM 2021 – PGG visit to the Gardens at Arley Hall
Amongst the finest in Europe the Gardens have been created over the last 250 years by successive generations of the same family. As a result they offer an unusual blend of long history and traditional design with inspired modern ideas and additions. As a result the garden is rich in atmosphere, interest and vitality.
The Herbaceous Border is its best know feature and is probably the first planted in England. As a result, along with the unique Quercus Ilex Columns, Pleached Lime Avenue of trees and the furlong walk the garden is amazing and interesting.
Within its eight acres of formal garden, there are many different areas, each with its own distinctive character. Beyond the Chapel is The Grove, a well established arboretum and a Woodland Walk of about 6 or 7 acre. The Grove has a pathway approx 1/3rd of a mile long and it will take you approx 30 minutes to walk around depending on your pace and interest in the planting. The Woodland Walk is approx 1/5th of a mile long and will take you approx 15 minutes to walk.
Most importantly you will see a huge range of plants of all kinds. This makes it a treasure trove both for the keen plantsman and for the less specialised visitor. Both The Grove and Woodland walk are not suitable for wheelchair access during wet periods. The Gardens has good wheelchair access, no matter what the weather.
