Twizel Nursery
Twizel Nursery
This must have been a tremendous place when in operation - the walls and buildings are now in a ruinous state, but enclose a great area and show signs of heated-walls (there are two fire-places just visible in this picture) - perhaps eg peaches and/or grapes were grown here alongside more hardy crops? (Thus far I have been unable to find any historical records for this sadly-overgrown place, despite spending much time in research.)
