2nd Visit to Morville Hall and Dower House Garden

Two identical day visits to accommodate numbers

Thursday 4th July 2013

Members will use their own cars to travel to Morville Hall and provide their own picnic lunch.

The visit will cost £14 per member and a maximum of 25 visitors can be acommodated.

The tours are arranged so that Morville Hall is visited first at approximately 11:00 am.  After the tour members will be able to picnic in the grounds.

A tour around the Dower House Garden will take place at approximately 2:00 pm and will be followed by tea and cakes.  Times for the tours will be confirmed nearer the event.

Morville Hall is two and a half miles from Bridgnorth.  It is an Elizabethan house behind a Georgian façade.  It is owned by the National Trust but has been appropriately furnished by the tenants, Dr and Mrs Douglas over the last two decades.  Although Morville Hall is owned by the National Trust it is only opened by appointment with the tenants so our visit represents a unique opportunity to view this important house.

The Dower House is tenanted by Dr Katherine Swift who, over the decades, has created a garden illuminating her passion for local history.  Each area of the garden reflects a different period of history which Dr Swift will guide us through.  Many members will have read her book about her gardening years at Morville called ‘The Morville Hours’.

More information regarding this visit can be obtained from Mary Goddard (contact details can be found on the reverse of your membership card).
