Elton Hall – in aid of the British Red Cross
July 9 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm£4.00
The Gardens at Elton Hall will be open in aid of the British Red Cross.
The gardens provide a stunning backdrop to the house. Prints displayed in the house show how Sir Thomas Proby first laid out his garden in the 1670’s and how it developed during the 18th century. During the 19thcentury the family really gardened in Ireland and Elton was left with a small shrubbery, some topiary and the parkland you see today. The present gardens are based on a design made in 1911 by A.H. Hallam Murray, father-in-law to Sir Richard Proby (d.1979). They have been completely revitalised over the last 35 years. Extensive hedging and topiary create different areas and structure throughout the year.
