Woolstone Mill House, Nr. Faringdon

The weather was not cooperating, but nevertheless several carfuls of members set off from Kennington on the evening of July 5th to visit the garden of Woolstone Mill House, Faringdon. Our faith was rewarded, as, by the time we were being welcomed by Mrs Spink, the downpour had become a drizzle, and the drizzle soon gave way to patches of blue sky.
Woolstone Mill House garden has the benefit of a stream running through it on one side of the house, which allows for some relaxed planting alongside it. stream

The kitchen garden is small, but beautifully designed.
