Description

Friday 15 May 2020

An interesting and inspiring guided garden walk in the renowned Turn End Gardens. Designed and made by architect Peter Aldington and his wife, Margaret, and an expression of the architects's belief that architecture and landscape design are an indivisible whole, these gardens are on a very human, even modest, scale, and offer lots of ideas that can be integrated at home especially in smaller gardens.

Space is used to create a illusion of size in an area of less than an acre and there are courtyards with pools, a small woodland around old apple trees and a curved glade leading to a series of garden rooms - sunken or raised, sunny or shady, geometric or formal. The gardens, and house, are grade 2* listed reflecting the quality and importance of this development designed and built in the 1960s.

We will start our walk with an informative talk by gardener, Jackie Hunt, before wandering around ourselves. The design elements and planting are delightful and there is masses to enjoy. I'll point out the details and we'll chat all things plant and design and discuss how you might use the ideas in your own garden. Please also bring your garden questions and I will hope to answer them.

We might also visit the studio of Artist in Residence, Heather Hunter - tbc.

About Sarah Layton

My approach is all about helping garden-owners make the most of their gardens for personal wellbeing as well as practicality and during the walk I will invite each of us to use our senses in a focused way and come fully present in this gorgeous and peaceful space.

Logistics

After visiting the garden we will walk 5 minutes down the road to the wonderful, destination cafe, Norsk, where we will partake of its famous open sandwiches. Lunch is included and vegan, gluten or dairy free dietary requirements can be catered for. Places are limited so that there will be plenty of time for chatting and making connections.

Turn End is located 3 miles north east of Thame and 5 miles south of Aylesbury. Turn off the A418 to Haddenham. In the village centre, turn at the Rising Sun pub into Townside. Turn End is opposite Dovecot. As it was created as a family home there is no visitor parking at the house or garden. There is free, unlimited parking street parking but please do park with consideration to the neighbours.

The garden is a 10-15 minute walk from Haddenham and Thame Station.

Access

The garden includes gravel and stone pathways, narrow archways and several steps. Please let me know if we can help you access the garden more comfortably.
