Photos from the PGG visit to Castor House, Cambridgeshire on Friday 24th June 2016.

Castor House is a 17th century Queen Anne house and was built for the Bishop of Peterborough as his summer residence in 1650. Since then it has had only two owners, the present family being here for almost 100 years. The 3 acre walled garden and 8 acre ornamental woodland was laid out by the White faimly between 1796 and 1915. In more recent times the garden has been re-landscaped and major restoration work was done to the 3 spring fed ponds, rill and stream with waterside planting by Bunny Guinness, a friend of the owners.
