Our visit to Lower House, Bowlhead Green

Yesterday, 6 June 2024, Mark and Virginia Turner led a group of 21 members on our visit to the beautifully designed 6 acre garden in the folds of the Surrey Hills.  Lower House dates back to the mid-16th century and in 1916 the then owner Lady Guillemard commissioned Gertrude Jekyll to design a plan for the garden.

The owner, Georginal Harvey has raised thousands for many different charities and last year made over £4,000 through open days and group visits.

Here are some photos taken by our Chairman, Gordon Jackson during our visit.

One of our members very kindly sent us the following message:

“I’m writing to say a big thank you to everyone involved in arranging the visit to Lower House today. It was fascinating to look round such a beautiful garden and Mart was a wonderful guide. The tea and cake were amazing, one of the best high teas we’ve ever had! My wife and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Please say thank you to Georgina Harvey as well for allowing us to visit, we felt very privileged!”
