Visit to The Garden at The Dower House – Melbourne, Derbyshire

The Garden at The Dower House

We are grateful to Griselda and William Kerr for allowing us to explore their garden at The Dower House.  Covering about 1½ acres overlooking Melbourne Pool, it is an inspiration for those wanting to start a garden from scratch.

After Lunch William Kerr very kindly accompanied us on a visit to two outstanding local churches:  St Michael with St Mary, one of the finest Norman churches in the country, and St Mary and St Hardulph,  set like a lighthouse on an island at low tide, at Breedon on the Hill.

Griselda’s book The Apprehensive Gardener will be published by Pimpernel Press in May 2019.
