A Day Trip to Ablington Manor and Wormington Grange
Ablington & Wormington

Ablington Manor, Bibury, described in The English Garden magazine as a place of ‘romantic reverie’, is an absolute gem, nestled in one of the most delightful villages in the Cotswolds. This 16th-century manor house is surrounded by an exquisite four acre garden which has been created over the last forty years by its current owners.

After lunch we’ll visit John Evetts at Wormington Grange, Stanton. Originally a photographer, John has been the Landmark Trust’s Furnishing Manager since 1976 and oversees the furnishing and interior renovation of the Trust’s buildings from his workshop and furniture store at his home at Wormington Grange.

Tickets are £55 to include coach travel, entrance to gardens, teas and coffees. Lunch is not included at £20 each (please bring cash on the day). Please request a Booking Form by emailing Minnie Tatham: minnietatham@hotmail.co.uk or complete and return the booking form in the Summer Newsletter.

Tickets are limited, as there is a waiting list from the first time round, so please respond quickly to make sure of your booking. They cost £68 each to include coach travel, 1-course light lunch (drinks charged extra), entry fees, guides and a cream tea before leaving Owlpen.

NB there are toilet facilities but no refreshments available at Sezincote, so do bring your own bottled drinks as required. Please complete and return the booking form in the Summer 2017 Newsletter.
