Turn End Talk: Canterbury Cathedral, gardens and grounds through time. An afternoon and talk with Philip Oostenbrink, Head Gardener

Come and meet Philip Oostenbrink, Head Gardener at Canterbury Cathedral. Philip will show archive material of the gardens and grounds of Canterbury Cathedral (Mother Church of the Church of England), beginning with 12th Century and Medieval plans, Victorian photographs and ending up with 20th century images that will show how the gardens and grounds developed throughout the 1,500 years of history of the site. Philip will also show what the gardens look like at present, any projects that are being undertaken and discuss the plant collections held at Canterbury Cathedral. The length of the talk is approximately 60 minutes after which there will be time for questions. A talk not just for people interested in gardens, but also for those who enjoy history.

14.30 in Haddenham Methodist Church, then Turn End garden for tea and homemade cakes.

£15 (Friends £12.00)
