Vote for your favourite National Trust garden
As the charity turns 125, we are asking Gardens Illustrated readers to vote for their favourite National Trust garden
Happy birthday to the National Trust! The charity was begun 125 years ago, on the 12 January in 1895, by three remarkable people - Octavia Hill, Sir Robert Hunter and Canon Hardwicke Rawnsley. Today the National Trust looks after over 500 historic places and 250,000 hectares of countryside.
The first building and garden rescued by the National Trust was the 14th century Alfriston Clergy House in East Sussex. It was bought for £10. Now there are a huge number of gardens to explore. But which are your favourite National Trust gardens? We are asking Gardens Illustrated readers to vote for their favourite garden. We will collate the winners next week, so keep your eyes peeled on GardensIllustrated.com for the results.
VOTING HAS NOW CLOSED.
Stay tuned for the winners.
