A rare opportunity for the public to see one of Norfolk’s most beautiful private gardens is coming this weekend.
Lord and Lady Ferrers, of Ditchingham Hall, are opening the grounds for one day on Sunday, April 14, to raise money for the Norfolk and Norwich Association for the Blind (NNAB).
From 2pm to 5pm, visitors will be able to walk around the majestic gardens, featuring an old walled garden with coloured themed borders, a rose garden and a pergola.
Meanwhile the woodland garden plays host to one of the largest plane trees in the county, several Cedars of Lebanon and a parterre designed by Hermione Shirley.
Clive Evans, from the NNAB, said: “We are extremely grateful to Lord and Lady Ferrers for opening up their private garden, and for supporting the work the NNAB does to support the visually-impaired.
