Adwell House Rare Plant Fair
1st September at 11:00 am to 4:00 pm£5.00
The Adwell Estate lies on ground sloping down from the Chiltern Hills. The Saxons called it Eadda’s Well, and hence the name today. The garden was originally laid out by the present owner’s ancestors in the 19th Century, and over successive generations further developments have taken place. Visitors are greeted with a magnificent herbaceous border which sweeps around the drive. The Parish Church nestles within the grounds and you are led around to the walled garden, with its herbaceous borders, roses and a superb collection of salvias. The garden is fed by spring water and the water garden continues to be the major feature with magnificent trees dominating the lawns.
