Gardens in Dyfed
This page Aberglasney Gardens - Nanteos
A garden "lost in time", in the process of restoration. The house and garden lay abandoned for over 50 years, falling slowly into ruin. One of the interesting features is a yew tunnel planted in the 18th century. A cloister garden parapet allows you to walk along the top of the walls for views over the garden below.
Hillside garden of recent vintage. Separate red, yellow, and blue gardens, bonsai, and a water garden. There is plenty of seating to enjoy the view across the valley. Best in: summer for the full effect of the colour schemes.
The garden surrounds a 19th century country house. Both formal and informal effects are evident, the informal is best seen in the walled garden and the woodland walks through the usual rhododendrons and a variety of unexpected tree species. Best viewed in: April and May.
Beautiful parkland, perhaps landscaped by Capability Brown, surrounds 17th century Newtown House. There are formal gardens near the house and woodland walks to historic Dinefwr Castle.
A real treat for the keen gardener! An informal setting contains a wide variety of rare plants arrayed in formal beds, herbaceous borders, and along woodland trails. The pride of the garden is its 150 varieties of old-fashioned roses. Note: do not confuse this garden with the similarly-named Dingle in Welshpool!

First railway bookstall opens
The stall was part of expansion to Euston station. Not groundbreaking history, but still a transformation in how people travelled! What was it like before this?
