Photographs from the PGG visit to Godington House on 26th June.
Godinton House dates back to 1390 and the gardens reflect the long history and changing tastes of its owners. 13 acres complement the magnificent Jacobean house. Terraced lawns lead through herbaceous borders, rose garden and formal lily pond to intimate Italian Garden and large walled garden with delphiniums, potager, cut flowers and iris border. Its yew hedge (said to be the longest in the country) was planted by Reginald Blomfield in 1900, and is cut to match the gables on the house and encloses formal lawns, elegant topiary, ponds and terraces of Blomfield’s design.
