House and Garden Open Day

Join the Trustees of Turn End Trust for a rare visit of the wonderfully expressive Turn End house and garden, the family home of Peter and Margaret Aldington.  Observe Peter’s ethos of connecting inside to outside and experience house and garden as a total enterprise.  Enjoy the enchanting series of walled gardens made up of secret places and visit the garden studio of Artist in Residence Heather Hunter. Teas and homemade cakes.  Home-grown plants for sale.

The film, Turn End – the Home and Garden of Architect Peter Aldington, by film director Murray Grigor, OBE and Director of Photography, Hamid Shams, is available on DVD (£17.50 including p&p) and well worth a watch before visiting Turn End.  It tells the story of the creation of the group of three houses and garden.  Filmed through all four seasons, Turn End captures how architect Peter Aldington masterly designed the houses and garden as one, making the garden a natural extension to the house. It goes right to the heart of the controversy of what is desirable housing development in country villages.  Available to buy here:
