Walcot Hall

UK»England»Shropshire»Walcot Hall

Walcot Hall dates back to Tudor times, the original Elizabethan facade being gabled. The gardens at Walcot Hall cover over 30 acres, including one of the finest Arboretums in Britain with a rich profusion of tree, shrub and herbaceous plantings. The Turkey, Oak and Lime avenue leads to the gateway to the Hall, which overlooks lawns, roses and a rolling meadow falling away to the lake with the Long Mynd in the distance. Behind the Hall and Ballroom are gardens with a display of Rhododendrons and Azaleas, best seen between May and June. Pathways lead up into the Arboretum beyond, with some 26 acres of trees.
