House and Garden Open Day

Come and enjoy a rare visit to this award-winning house and listed garden and observe Peter Aldington’s ethos of connecting house to garden; inside to outside.  When Historic England listed Turn End’s garden at Grade II and added it to the Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in England in November 2017, Turn End was the only post-war listed house and garden created by the same hand. 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:
