Come and see the Victorian gardens attached to this 1000 year old Grade 1 Listed house. The structure of the present gardens was devised by the owner, Wickham Flower, at the end of the 19th century when he and Philip Webb, a famous architect, set about restoring them. They were both part of the Arts and Crafts Movement which believed that the integration of house and garden was very important, the philosophy being that the house and landscape were connected with the house spilling out into the garden in a series of out-door rooms. The garden at Great Tangley Manor was recorded as being one of the most progressive gardens of the 1880’s.
You are welcome to bring a pic-nic whilst listening to live music, including the charity’s very own ToCVoices choir, and to wander around 5 acres of garden. There will be a tea and cake stall, a Pimms tent, a plant and bric-a-brac stall, a tombola and history tours of the house.
