Who would have thought that a beautiful one acre garden is hidden behind the charming facade of Ryton House – slap in the centre of Lechlade. Whilst the traffic trundles its noisy way through Lechlade, behind the house it is a green oasis of peace and tranquility.
Ryton is one of our WRAGS training gardens. The garden owners kindly permitted WFGA to use the garden as a fundraiser for the Association.
Stepping off the pavement and through the house you wandered onto a cool green lawn surrounded by herbaceous borders and shrubs and roses scrambling up and over the walls. A large vegetable and fruit section lies around the corner – behind some tall hedges. And then yet more garden compartments are found on your meander around.
Unfortunately we didn’t sell as many cakes as hoped – everyone had eaten too much Sunday lunch – or had eaten a lot of free samples at the food fair in the market place before returning to look at the garden. A beautiful sunny day out.
