Myddleton House and Forty Hall, Enfield

With the London Parks & Gardens Trust

10.45am, Tuesday 2 July

A visit to Myddleton House and Forty Hall to the north of London in Enfield Borough will take place in early July in association with London Parks and Gardens Trust. Myddelton House, Bulls Cross, Enfield, was built for H. C. Bowles in 1818 on the site of an earlier house. The well-known plantsman E. A. Bowles made a famous garden there c1900, which has recently been restored.

We will have a guided tour of the garden, to be followed by lunch and a visit to nearby Forty Hall, built for Sir Nicholas Raynton in 1629. The extensive grounds, which include the site of the Tudor Elsynge Palace and water-gardens, were formally laid out at the end of the 17th century and subsequently landscaped. Funding has been granted for the restoration of many of the historic features, and we will be taken round the grounds by Sally Prothero and Chris Laine of LDA, who have drawn up the management plan.

Price: £30, to include lunch and coffee/tea on arrival. For further information, or to receive a booking form, please contact Robert Peel
