SP2092 : Head gardener's cottage, Hams Hall

taken 9 years ago, near to Lea Marston, Warwickshire, Great Britain

Head gardener's cottage, Hams Hall
Head gardener's cottage, Hams Hall
A view inside the former two-acre walled kitchen garden of Hams Hall, a remnant of the 100 hectare estate acquired in 1919 by Birmingham Corporation, who needed it as a strategic location for a power station. The garden is now an environmental education centre owned by E-on and is not open to the public. The head gardener's cottage is being restored and extended to accommodate the centre, now housed in temporary classrooms. The brick wall with recesses was probably the heated rear wall of a lean-to (south-facing) greenhouse. The yew trees in the background are in the churchyard of Lea Marston parish church, at SP204927.
