One of the glories of Cornwall is the abundance of beautiful gardens which are to be found throughout the county. Of these gardens, the National Trust garden of Glendurgan is one of the great Cornish gardens.
Drawing on a wide selection of photographs, Charles Fox will tell the story of five generations of his family who developed not only Glendurgan, but those other great Cornish gardens, Trebah, Penjerrick and Fox Rosehill.
Charles Fox is an artist and garden designer, and also a descendant of Alfred Fox, who started the garden at Glendurgan. Charles has written “Glendurgan: A Personal Memoir of a Garden in Cornwall” (2004) and has lectured extensively about the wider Cornish garden scene.
This acclaimed lecture has now been updated with some more recent photographs which show in particular his appreciation of how Glendurgan is maintained today.
