Brockhampton Church

Brockhampton ChurchIf you have any interest in architecture, you must visit this church. The building is inspired by the Arts & Crafts movement. This was a brief period between 1890 – 1914 when British designers in the Decorative arts, furniture as well as architecture, made an important contribution to the culture not only of Britain but of the world. Pevsner, the great authority on British heritage, describes Brockhampton as ‘one of the most impressive churches of its date in any country’.

Visit Weston Hall Gardens & Tea near Ross on Wye HR9 7NS.

Weston Hall dates back to the 16th century and is surrounded by a 6 acre garden. Over the past 100 years or so, four generations of the Aldrich-Blake family have been enthusiastic stewards of this lovely place. Each generation has left its mark on the house and the gardens. A doorway in the garden, opens into a walled garden with herbaceous borders, vegetables and fruit overlooked by a Millenium folly. A lawn sweeping to the west of the house is surrounded by magnificent cedars as well as other unusual trees and shrubs. This leads to a meadow and orchard with a small lake beyond. The visit includes tea and biscuits.
