The Wall of Pane

We are very lucky that our visitors love our Nursery and care about our glasshouses as much as we do. Many kind customers have asked if they can contribute financially to our conservation project and so we have set up the ‘Wall of Pane’ Sponsorship scheme. If you would like to help towards restoration costs and feel able, then you can sponsor a pane of glass for £10 or a glazing bar for £30. All sponsors’ names will be added to the Wall of Pane and by joining our free gardening club you will receive e-newsletters with details of our progress.

Please note that we do not spend any sponsorship money on our Vinery. We are looking for separate funding for this glasshouse as a total re-build is required. In 2017, we were given a large gift by the granddaughter of Ernest Hardcastle, the original Head Gardener of our estate. This extremely generous gift will enable us to rebuild our four central glasshouses with work due to start in April 2017. These glasshouses will be out of bounds until work is completed.

Thank you for support so far. The renovations here never end and the challenges are countless. It is a true labour of love, but the rewards of conserving such an important piece of history are priceless and we could not do it without you.
